My buddies swear by spring upgrades. Is it worth it to blow $00-500 on new springs?? Or will a properly tuned STOCK suspension setting be good for riding hard in corners??
Dude..I can get ya the proper rate springs for WAY less than $500.00 ...I have them on my 750, and they work great..here's what I had done..new springs for the front..the stock rear shock was revalved, reshafted with 1/2" shaft, and 12mm longer.also recharged, and new oil, with a 400# spring..all for $300.00 plus shipping..if your interested..shoot me a PM..
Also, the head shaking still had me pondering..now I'm wondering if your rebound is set way to hard on the forks..?? and then..what about the compression..? I'd reset them at stock, get the SAG set..keep in mind, any adjustments you make with the stock suspension, won't be as much of a benifit as a aftermarket set up, and yes..new springs..ect..will not only be like night, and day..but confidence inspiring as well..When I had my 97 600 gix..I spent well over a grand on the suspension, and it wasn't $700.00 better than what I have now..so for about 3 bills..I can hook ya up, and trust me..it will be the best 3 hundered you'l ever spend..
I can't mention the name brand, due to the very low price..all componets will be custom made for your weight, and riding style..let me know..
