Like I said, have another closer look, it's a galvanised post in the ground 6 feet at the front of the bike

Ed, i was not directing that to you.

Exactly. Especially when the cost of doing that is about the same as the basic (Z series) YSS shock...and the Cogent Dynamics spokesperson is not even sure about the SHOWA OEM design.

We were talking about the rear shock - specifically, rebuilding it with different components, unknown quantity in terms of results, and at a cost that is about the same as buying a good YSS shock.
The rest, i have probably spent more than most on modifying the bike.

CAT: Absolutely no offense taken. YSS deserves a good look for sure. However, VERY little effort was required to make a BIG improvement on the supposedly unrebuildable KLR shock..sadly, doing anything to the stock CRF shock so far seems unlikely.

Hagon shock

The reply to my inquiry to Hagon said, "Unfortunately, we do not have a listing for you bike". Too bad, I did mention the dealers were selling them out all over the world, also.

Looks like a 'Peak' Tailbag. I have one of those on my WR250R.
IMHO: great bag.

Vspec.. its the peak!

http://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm?...&product_id=85 largest tail bag they offer with the easiest mounting system. remove the clips and cinch down through existing loops on man rack or their rear rack! IMHO(p.s.) Zone you beat me to the punch!

If the stream isn't running very strong, you can see to the bottom. Faster running, not so much. You can always find a downed branch, and poke around first. Best way is to let the other guy/gal go first. Known crossings are one thing, never been there before, a different story. Be ready to hit the kill switch before it goes under, piston doesn't like compressing water.............
