Hi guys, i have the Showa 49 spring forks on my new crf 450 2018. After of 2,5 hours to be exact, riding my new bike, i realized that the springs was too soft for me so i changed the rate from 5,0 to 5,2. My question now is, after installing the new springs and squeezing them vertically, i found out that one of the two forks has a more grinding noise (feeling) than the other one, i did the same procedure on both of them. Is that normal??

No. Pull it apart and try installing again.

No, something must be wrong.
You will need to disassemble the forks and have it checked.
Right and left fork are identical on the inside, therefore they should work the same.
