Anti-Dive Springs

Post by eluwak »



I finally finished/reinstalled my rebuilt carb and took the wing for the first powered ride around the block. The suspension is pretty rough, and I doubt it has ever been services by the look of things. I'm starting off with full front fork rebuild including the anti-dive system on both sides. I have found all of the parts that I might need except the springs in the anti-dive assemblies. I am concerned these might need replacing, but not sure. Has anyone run across the need to replace them when doing a rebuild?

No, never had to replace them. But I have only rebuilt three sets of forks.
