I'm rebuilding a /5 and plan on keeping the original forks and brakes.
I'm looking for a basic weekend canyon road and city performance. Nothing too aggressive. I'd love to handle bumps without snapping my forearms and have a nice response when cruising in the twisties.
Has anybody installed the Race Tech kit in the front springs?
I love the idea of a better fork response that Race Tech supposedly offers.
When i look up their spring guide, it says the stock BMW springs are .300 kg/mm.
And it recommends a spring that is .834 kg/mm.
What does that mean? The springs are going to be stiffer?
I am also concerned about the Cartridge emulator kit. Does it require cutting the top of the dampening rod?
Or do those cartridges and emulator adapters install without any modifications?
Thanks in advance.
