Thread: F800GT spongy forks

    F800GT spongy forks

    So I noticed my 2014 F800GT (about 12k on clock) is getting spongy front forks. On my 2006 Yamaha FZ1 I started feeling this about 10K ago and I had dealer change oil and go up one weight (from 7 to 10 I believe). Has anyone dealt with this before on F800GT? I love the bike and handling, but hate the dipping with hard front brake. Any other suggestions? I checked with Progressive and they do not offer a stiffer spring.


    Thanks,

    Grant

    There are other companies besides Progressive doing suspension upgrades. I went with the Hyperpros for my F8GS.

    Talk to Ted, he knows his stuff.

    I installed the Hyper Pro's on my 700 GS and am very happy with the results.
