The linear plates that you mention, do you mean Flux Plates? And if so are you running MKI or MKII? I'm on the hunt for a set of the Gen II plates or a cad drawing with specs to have my buddy make a set on his water jet. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Nice pics btw.
Felix is the Aussie member you can contact for the Flux 2 plates.
I've had my set in for over 3 years of racing and track days and I did a check on the plates this week when I upped my spring rate and they were as good as gold. I have a spare set just in case.
The flux M2 plates need 5 to 6mm of shims or a shock you can lengthen to return it to the standard ride height.
If you're using the standard spring rate it will probably still be too heavy if you are a light guy.
People who order after market shocks might need to go up 25 to 50 lbs on the spring rate depending on your weight to get the right static and rider sag settings from my own experience.
My shock was supposed to be a 575lb according to the booklet that come supplied with it, but it was a 600lb when I checked it, and I had to go to a 625lb to get the right static sag figures, I'm 84kg or 185lb.
Very big guys can probably get away with using the standard spring rate when going to a linear link.
