Thanks

Yes. You just have to remember that the emulator takes up about 14 MM or so of spring space, so you have to subtract that from the length of the spacer that goes on top to achieve the overall length reccomended. You can call Race Tech and tell them you are using the progressive rate springs, and they may have specific reccomendations for that setup as well. I think Race Tech has a non-compete agreement with distributors, but I'm not sure. I think emulators are like $169.00 everywhere. Anybody know different?

That would have been a Hondashadow.net world. I was there a lot when I had my 750. Well I didn't even know that there was such a thing as these forums until I bought the R*. The PO told me to check out the forums for oil change procedures and that was when I discovered the RSC. Live and learn. I'm still pretty new on the computer scene as well.

We had an Apple II and Atari (yes, THAT Atari) 2600 computers when I was a senior in high school, but I was still doing drafting class on vellum, with pencils. We went on a field trip and saw one of the first CNC machines in Eastern Kentucky. It had 20 (!!) 5.5 inch floppy drives to hold enough lines of code to make a 3-way plumbing junction. They told us it took 3 weeks to get the code right, and they needed to sell at least 2000 of them to recover the cost of writing the program, if they were to sell the part at a competitive price! Wow! we've come a long way. My laptop can run 3 machines at once (acccording to?? it's just something I heard!) I still feel pretty behind. I was one of the people that thought Digital Audio Tape had it all over CD's!

Man I never saw a computer until I had been out of high school a couple of years. Of course I am 5 yrs. older than you. Things have changed so much since then but not always for the better.

The Gold Valve part number for the 1700 and for the Royal Star (The one folks use on the 1600) is the same it is

FEGV 4301.

They are for 43MM Showa forks, which is Yamaha's standard for big bikes.

At 205lbs. is the FRSP S3732095 the right spring part # ?

Either the S3732095 or he S3732100 will work for you. I personally like things a little on the stiffer side because I tend to ride pretty hard and rely heavily on the front brake when doing so. I have the S3732100 and feel I could even go one stiffer (I'm 200lbs.). But, the S3732095 should feel slightly less harsh during normal riding. The difference between the two would be tough to notice for the majority of riders, IMO

So, the answer to your question lies in how you usually ride I think.
