I had Elka's and basically got tired of haveing to revalve them, send them back or even trying to get them dialed in.Originally posted by Rico'450R@Aug 18 2004, 09:30 AM
I'd rather have Elka's!
About 2 hours of riding on them. Some get lucky with Elka's others not.Originally posted by Rico'450R@Aug 24 2004, 11:03 AM
How long do you ride on them until you needed to revalve them?
I feel the same way. I don't putt very much and my shocks feel the much better when going fast. In fact the faster I go the better they feel!!! B)Originally posted by liveformx64@Aug 25 2004, 03:07 PM
Elkas are a little more Harsh because you can get faster lap times with a more agressive suspension setup. It may hit you a little more at low speeds, but as soon as you turn the wick up they work beautifully. Like PEP in my experience.
I much rather prefer a little stiff setup, to take those big hits when you gotta try something new in the whoops or overjump a tad. they will keep you super flat in the corners. Plus valving is valving. You can always have them changed a little bit.
I dont understand why somone would need to Revalve a shock every 2 hours of riding. Unless you just couldnt make up your mind on what you liked.
About the suspension being harsh. Just go a little faster, get in a little better shape, and Hold on the gas.
