    Help with Noleen Chubby LT on my Beast

    I'm trying to revive an old (98 or so) Proflex K2 Beast that my girlfriend gave me for christmas last year. I bought the last set of medium mountainspeed springs from MRP, but I have some installation questions.

    As you can see in the pics, the instructions basically show that the factory elastomers should be replaced with the springs provided in the kit, right? If I did this, the fork would be 8" short!


    As you can see in the bottom pic, I added the factory aluminum spacer, spring, and elastomer to make up for the difference. Should I keep this combination or use only elastomers to dampen the ride? I don't want a spring only pogo stick and I need something to fill in the gap that the mountainspeed springs leave.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Those forks were air damped so it wont pogo too wildly on the rebound unless your spring weight is way stiff.
