  • I'm pretty sure they the fr3 black stantion an the damper adjust is on the right if you r sitting on the bike will they still be good for doing small 2-3 foot drops ect thanks for the quick reply
  • Nick will they still be as durable with removing a spring??

    It was a common thing to d with the dirt jump frorks.

    And they did make air Z150s.


    You could remove both springs i you really wanted to.

    How much do you weigh?

    then i would be giving them a strip down as something is wrong if you cant get the sag out of them as standard.
