FZ6 Suspension

The rear on my FZ6 is adjustable, but the front forks are not. What would I do to stiffen up the front a bit? It seems a bit too soft for my 215 lbs.

New springs are about 100
Oil less than 20
Emulators about 150

You would get biggest bang on springs and oil.

At the very least change the oil to a heavier weight. The stuff that comes in the bike is very light weight. When I changed mine I went to 10 weight and it helped. Some go to 15 weight.

Also, you could upgrade the springs and the weight of the oil. I don’t mind the stock springs so until I have issues I’m not changing them.

If you haven’t already check out the fz6 forum.
