And I want to send them to someone who knows what they are looking at. I am currently considering Ohlins or Pro Action. Just wondering if there is an advantage of one over the other? Just wondering what everyone's experience has been with Pro Action. I know Ohlins will be top notch but didn't Pro Action originally set the bikes up and put their own valving in the shocks/forks? I think you have MX-Tech confused with Pro-Action. When Cannondale was in business at a regional qualifier for Loretta's the Pro-Action guy was there (George Quay) and they completely worked over my suspension, making a night and day difference. I have also used MX-Tech. Be sure to be honest when you tell them how much you weigh, how fast your are, etc.,,,

What viscosity and how much Fork oil

If you are rebuilding your Forks, I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND replacing the fluid with Synthetic (last Longer) and is cleaner for the internal Valves... Viscosity will fine tune your suspension. you need to take into consideration your location, your riding weight and riding habits... The lower the number the more action, the Higher the number, the slower the response and harder ride but when you take into consideration Weight and Normal Ambient Temperatures... You need to dial in your own number...

Take them to someone who specialises on suspension rebuilds and get them sorted properly. You cannot afford to mess about with the handling on a bike that is capable of 200mph!

Im 5'7 at 175lb & will soon own an 08 KTM 530 EXC-R street legal version it sits way to tall for me, what can I do to lower without taking to much away from performance but atleast have two feet on the...

You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

My 2002 le mans suspension always feels stiff on bumpy roads. feed back through the handlebars and seat is always far more harsh than my ducati with ohlins fitted. i have settings at fairly soft but still...

Like most bikes, they come with pretty ordinary suspension, as you say, even on the softest setting, they are still not very comfortable. Most standard bike suspension is set up for a heavy person solo, or to carry a pillion passenger and luggage. The only suggestion is to customise your suspension. Ohlins are one of the best for the rear, or Koni. For the front, some new springs of a brand name, and good fork oil, with the correct amount of oil in each leg, mabey a little less if you want it softer.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 kx 85 , It has pro tech suspension , front fork seals are leaking , would stock fork seals fit this protech suspension? How hard would this be to do myself? Ive done lots of other work on...

Stock fork seals will work but if I were you, I woudl take it to someone who has the correct tools take your fork seals out without gouging the fork leg. If your seals are leaking then chances are you're also low in fluid. Your fluid level is what decides how hard or soft your front end is (In addition to fork spring rate).

Adjusting front fork rebound damping screw

It sounds like your forks need servicing by a professional. Your instincts were right, they should be about equal length, so something BAD has happened to one of the forks. I would recommend going to a sport bike speed shop that specializes in suspension work to have this fixed since the guys at HD barely know how to change the spark plugs on a Buell in most cases.

A good shop can not only repair the damage, but help you to set the suspension exactly right for you (the Buell manual is just a ballpark setting) by checking the sag in the suspension, and they can even upgrrade your forks and shocks for you.

Arguably the best in the business is Max at traxxion dynamics. They have drop in cartridges that allow the showa forks to come close to the Ohlins used by the pros. Not that the showas are bad, In fact Buell always put decent factory suspension on their bikes, which is why it's repairable, instead of needing to replace it.
