Just back from the first run out with the YSS Emulators installed in the front forks.
I am quite pleased with the improvements to both the damping and smoothing out effects over the Derbyshire pothole collection. Next run will be 2 up to see lf the improvements apply with a pillion on board.
Coupled with the recently fitted YSS Ecoline rear shocks, the ride is becoming more comfortable.

The 2 up run with the YSS emulators installed was a great improvement. . Hoping for a run around Yorkshire in a few weeks. That will be ultimate test for me.

Hi Stuart,

Did you increase the rear YSS pre-loads for the 2 up ride.

Be safe, be seen!

I never heard of YSS emulators but if they work like Race Tech they make a great improvement in the SW fork. Improved fork then rear shocks seem to be the next issue they are soft.

What type and weight fork oil did you use?

At this stage, I am using the shocks as supplied until I have tried it fully loaded. I can then start adjustment from there.
Re fork oil, I have used 20 wt Putoline.
To allow for the added bulk of the emulator, I increased the air gap by 10mm.
So far, so good.

I rode my YSS shocks out of the box and they seemed OK for solo riding. As a guess, I took a 3cm measurement from fixed points to tighten them up for pillion riding. That too seems to work OK too.

For pillion plus baggage I would probably take them down another 0.5cm.

Thanks for the info on settings. It's always handy to know what works for other users
