Like many budget bikes, the FZ6 comes with really basic bare-bones suspension on both ends. No adjustability, except preload on the rear, and sprung pretty soft.
So, I upgraded the forks with new springs, oil, and cartridge emulators from Race Tech. Now I'm faced with a dilemma. The stock rear shock has noticeably less damping (rebound and compression) than the recommended setup I used for the front. I love the way the front feels, but I can also tell that front and rear aren't matched up. It's nothing scary or dangerous, but I get some front-back oscillations on some types of bumps. Also, when I push straight down on the bike, the back moves down (and then back up) quicker than the front.
So, the question is this... Do I keep the front end at the recommended settings, or do I put in some lighter fork oil to back off the damping until it matches the rear? I know I'd be losing some of the benefits of my upgrade if I change the fork oil, but I'd hopefully be getting some harmony between the front and back.
Oh, and I can't afford a rear shock just yet, but that would obviously be the ideal solution.
