    the reason i ask is i personally have not seen any setup guide for any specific bike for these. They are basically universal for any bike that they fit. when i did mine i had to do a lot of testing and tuning to get them where i wanted them. It was worth the effort. Put them in, ride it and make adjustments based off the guide and what you are feeling. I don't think there is any magic pill for settings given that every rider is different.

    I haven't seen much Racetech instructions on most bikes but on my Katana 750 forks I installed on my GS500, the instructions thoroughly explain where to drill and weld the OE damper rods so the emmulators work properly. I guess with them, it comes down to which bike and the difficulty of the install.

    If you call Race Tech and ask for support, give your bike, your weight (along with any additional load you want to carry) they will give your pretty good specifics on how to set them up. They did for me...

    So, does one have to drill out the flow holes for more flow, or can ya just install them emulators under the main springs and go?

    No, you have to drill. The point is that the emulator will replace the holes in the damper rods for dampening duties. The reason the dampening is crap normally, is the holes are too restrictive. Therefore, you must drill out the dampening holes to allow the fluid to get to the emulator so it can do the dampening.

    No,must be drilled...per exact instructions! Not drilling would totally screw the pooch....did you read their instructions?
    Read all this thread (above) and it should come clear.

    You might find a local Scrambles racer or enduro rider who has a room full of trophies and get him to help you.
    Or, call Race Tech with very specific info on your bike & weight, where & how you want to ride and don't blow smoke about how good you are.
    He will know what you need to do, including oil viscosity & level.
    If you don't want to fool with it, find a local shop that does suspension work for dirt bikes and let them do it...piece o' cake for them!
    They will probably call Race Tech for specifics.

    You might also replace the rear OE spring, even if new. Anytime you fix the suspension on one end of a bike, it will magnify any weaknesses on the other end. Pro Cycle has the spring in two strengths. They are good and will balance the bike out. I think they are also made by Race Tech but not sure.
    I have Emulators and their front & rear springs on my bike....a really sweet, balanced package. My suspension no longer feels like the bottom shelf package it is (was).

    Do it right, do it once...and let us know how ya make out!
