Melbourne Australia , Note fork springs are different lenghts 950 ,525 . You will have to order springs to suit the 525 forks. as you will be running the longer lenght .

easy
then sell the other forks as motard forks So it should only cost a set of spring unless you make a profit on the motrad forks . then you'll be in front


Well I'm off to the World rally chams In perth aust, .

Ps have you tried a 7.5 oil and razing the oil hieght 5mm to 10mm ( i haven't yet but thats the first thing i have plain when i get back and it's the cheapest )
Mudguts,

Ok, so what about the rear shock? Or does your friend have a chopper, 300mm at the front and less at the rear?

Thanks for the info.

Pyn, Sorry for the delay in reply I been watching the world rally cars in pertth, And drinking bucket loads of beer with the all drivers,( couldn't bothered name droping ) I beleive the shock is vavled so it sits lower in the stroke with a long top out spring , so I'm told ,I could be wrong.

"Valved so it sits lower in the stroke"................"long top out spring".........I think your right..........you could have been told wrong . I would really like a full set of Rallye Suspension with 320mm stroke if anybody knows where this could be available?

What forks on Ebay.............

There was a pair of forks on Ebay they went for $ 255 US There are more sets but more exspensive . The 6kg fork springs are by tecknic springs ,

Autostream has had his forks revalve by a guy here in Aust , Man there are super plush its night and day between the standard vavling and what he has had done, ( suspension R us +61 3599,1021 . issy ) I'll find out nore info . I'll be pulling bike down this weekend while I'm wait for a couple of parts to come after a cash last week .

That's a little more than knee draging

Now I have done that, I just wasn't able to keep going.

At what angle are you driving at this photo??

I heard the new rubber can reach as low as 42 degrees from the asphalt but you seem to go less than that!! Impressive!!

It took some getting, but I got it in the end, despite what the moderators thought!

Next installment here should be a detailed water pump rebuild (a 'how to' for those interested) after my trip to Big Bend this weekend.
