rc51 owners HELP

Need some advise on front shocks, mine are fucked up. Should I rebuild, and if I do , with what kind of kit or replacement parts. And if i go broke and get new ones, are stock and O MY $$$ olines, or what ever the big money ones are, worth it.

if u have to ask the question wrt ohlins, then they are not for you...

front fork rebuilds are worth it, contact your local suspension tuner and expect to spend several hundred on the rebuild

good luck

best price on a rebuild will likely come from someone like dan kyle (www.kyleusa.com) give them a call

Also you might log in http://www.fireblades.org/ & then you would be dealing with RC-51, 900, 929, 954, & 1000 Honda riders.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
