So where to go from here? Springs, for starters. Stiffer springs with less preload should restore some of that plushness at the top of the stroke and offer more support on the brakes. Then I'll experiment with the damping via heavier weight fork oil, a revalve, or even new fork internals, if necessary. I'll take this one step at a time to see what yields the biggest bang for the buck for FZ-09 owners out there, but I'm also committed to turning this triple into a razor-sharp canyon carver, and I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen.
