Xv-01 long damper vs regular?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am looking to convert my XV-01 from regular to long damper spec. 

 

Are the only differences as follows:

Damper eyelets (longer)

damper stays (taller)

sway bars (to help control body roll)

 

thanks!

The shocks on xv01 are CVA super mini, the dampers on the long damper spec are CVA mini dampers. this will be the fastest easiest swap over. 
 

I suggest considering GF01 Damper set 54670, if your looking for more travel, these are slightly longer again than CVA mini and perform considerably better. either will come with long enough eyelets. You may want to limit the travel slightly, or grind suspension parts to take full advantage of the extra travel, if you do this sway bars are mandatory. You’ll want a full host of springs to get it setup right, trf501x front spring set are great on the rear, the trf201x front spring set will suit up front better. you’ll want a set so you can fiddle with the springs to get the right sag/body control.

That's pretty much it. 70mm shocks, swaybars, a good spring selection, and the towers.

I converted my xv01t to a long damper xv01. I bought the front spring set from the trf 501 and used the longer eyelets on all 4 corners with the cva mini shocks from the xv01t and the carbon long damper stays. Super easy conversion and the springs fit perfectly with no need for the clip on spacers to get a good ride height.
