        Skip this post if you dont have a sense of humor

        Stone?
        Your spring tension and nitrogen charge will depend on two things:
        1: The motorcycle wheelbase expressed in cubits.
        2: How fast you intend to go, expressed in leagues per fortnight.
        Divide 1 by 2, and take the result to the local witch - doctor (I guess this would be the Harris place)
        -Just kidding around. How much is a stne in kilos / pounds?
        -I'm sorry....I did not know she was your sister.
        -If Buckleys cold mixture went rancid......how would anybody know????
        -Dont piss off the quiet guy with the chain saw.

            i had no idea what a stone was either....

            goto www.google.com
            type in "convert 13 stone to pounds" and it'll tell you.
            this works for 99% of units of measure, some math, ect...

                I'm gonna have to start using stones, I much prefer the sound of ' how much do I weigh? only 15 stone mate' to the alternative in pounds.... mind you, 95kilos dosn't sound half as bad either....

                    If you havent bought it yet call Fox beforehand and get them to put the right strength spring for you.
                    Will be sending mine off soon for a rebuild so will also get a new spring as I'm around 185lbs.

                    Sag should be set for street use (easy to do when your ready) and turn most of the adjusters (compression and/or rebound) to pretty much zero.
                    Ride the bike and adjust them as neccesary for how it feels to your butt...

                    As little compression as poss so that the wheel follows the road nicely and as little rebound as poss so that the back end doesnt pump down. If you find the back squatting under hard accel you can perhaps wind in a bit more compression. Its all a compromise... a fun one though...

                        kilo to pounds: http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...kilo+to+pounds

                        in pounds:
                        http://www.google.com/search?num=50&...+%29+to+pounds

                        you in kilo:

                        http://www.google.com/search?num=50&...ds+%29+to+kilo




                        its really a neat little trick. i use it all the time for conversions.
