Race Tech Fork Spring Rates

Howdy,

Anyone tried Race Tech fork springs, and what spring rate worked for you? In a 01 V11 with 190 lb rider, their site shows .90 kg/mm. A good Guzzi tech told me people like 1.0 for RT springs…..RT says that will be very stiff. Would love to hear what has worked for you.

I’ve read good things about RT, I think GuzziTech uses them, and they’re just down the road from me!
Cheers!

Kane,  when my front end was rebuilt it was fitted with both a 0.9 and a 1.0. I cannot say which spring went where. The springs were only part of the equation along with an Andreani valve kit in 26mm. Interestingly the oil that was used was 20 cSt as opposed to the usual 26 cSt recommended for Marzocchis The stock front end is atrocious with next to no compression damping. New springs would help a little but a deeper dive into the forks would give much better results. Race Tech would be a good place to start for either springs or a full front end rebuild.
