Anti-Dive Fix

Postby KTMkeithWING » Mon May 09, 2016 3:12 pm



Where to find the black silicone rubber metric O-Rings for the anti-dive pin . 12000 miles on bike and I have gotten to hate this braking system .

Take the anti dive out of the equation with an anti dive delete kit

It is what I did, and I have not regretted it for an instant.

But if you do, you probably want to change the fork springs as the front end tends to collapse under braking!! Standard springs are too soft. I removed the anti-dive and fitted Progressive springs 6 years ago and still love the setup!!

As Gary mentions, I also did. Both anti dive delete and Progressive springs.
