I read through the links, but I have a question. Has anyone lowered a set of Dio type forks? I pulled the retaining ring, but the center doesn't pull out. They look like the KN's, but I don't have a bolt on the top of mine to pull the springs out.

Also, could the inner(silver) tubes just be chopped down and re-grooved for the bolt? This method would seem easier, without messing with the springs inside. Theoretically it would still hit the bumpstop before bottoming out. As long as to much isn't cut off, it should be fine right?

Thoughts?

No shit.. How does anyone even make sense of that... I tried reading it, and actually got mad and said: "What the FUCK is this shit!"

Anyhow..
Does anyone have any experience with the KN, NCY, or ATR? Which one may be of the bestest quality?
Links:
-http://www.jiangwayne.com/scooter/p_i.php?i=333 <-- KN *SPEC*.
-http://totalruckus.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=50366 <--NCY
-http://www.bowlsla.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=42&idproduct=9378 <--ATR

I'm kinda looking for best quality.. I don't mind paying a little extra for QC, and I'm sure no one else would mind..

Anyway, Thanks in advance for your input.

Translation for NCY forks and other after market forks.....lift front of ruckus, unscrew top of one fork...turn handles bars and unscrew top of other fork....stick finger in an pull out springs being careful not to spill shock oil everywhere...... cut off coils from top of springs........... put springs back in and caps back on........lower ruckus back to ground. Enjoy your non gay looking forks.

NOTE: cutting more than 8 coils off of NCY forks will leave you no dampening. 8 even, is kind of rough(but i love it), 4-6 leaves a good ride. "NCY CARBON TI COATED" others may vary?

whats good yeeda, i just modified my NCY's a few weeks ago(cut off 4 coils), i also changed out the stock shock fluid for Bel Ray shock oil(1oz in each shock). Did you change/add shock oil? if so how much/what brand and weight? Im asking because I still bottom out a little, im a 200lb rider, and I am not sure if after i cut the springs i should add extra shock oil to make up for the added rebound. thanks for any info!
