I would look to see what Andreani recommend. Sometimes with fork cartridge systems you do not need heavier springs, sometimes you do.

i'm about 200 lbs. and I have never bottomed out ... even OFF ROAD! So could be previous owner of my bike upgraded springs??

Overall the front end is one of the best I've ridden (over 40 bikes!) My rear shock was reworked as well so overall, a magic carpet ride on my bike. Very nice indeed. It's the whole reason I bought the bike. We have lots of beat up, bumpy roads around here. (NorCal) the Strada eats them up!
springs are included with Andreani cartridge system. If you order one you tell them your weight and get the appropriate springs.

One of the best reviews of the Andreani I've seen. I think we need to switch bikes so I can try that out

I've heard rumors about an All Strada ride coming up, so maybe we can arrange a ride!

For me, I think the ride and general sense of well being on my Strada also has to do with how good the chassis and geometry are.

My forks DO dive a bit ... but I don't mind that at all after 15 years on long travel dual sport bikes. I simply mitigate fork dive with a bit of rear brake. The trade off in plushness for me is worth it.

My set up is NOT a high speed race track type set up, but does well on slow, knarly, tight back roads.

Excellent! I will order these this week.

I spoke with my dealer here in Chicago and they said they would charge $480 total for the install. My plan is to just take the forks in with the bike when I take it in for Winter Storage and have them do the suspension work.

Looking forward to a stiffer front end for sure!!

Maybe I'll look into the rear too while I'm at it.

Thanks for the info!
