Hello to all,
If I disable the anti-dive do I figure to have premature fork seal problems?

You are more likely to have seal failure if you don't disable it.But i wouldn't disable unless you have replaced the factory springs with progressive or traxxion because it will dive more during a sudden stop.

No.

You do not have to totally disable it. You can just reduce the preload on it and stop most of the harsh ride but it will still function if need be.

I have the Traxxion but do not think it will cause premature seal failure with stock springs. It justs operates closer to a normal standard fork without the anti-dive active

I agree about the springs...even Honda agrees about the springs if you notice that they put beefier springs in the 2012 bikes.

Traxxion or Progressive or even RaceTech...does race tech have their own springs? I assume they do.
