Would this be the wrong thread to address the "shock" issue?
TwiTwin, David and I have gone around and around with this, we did find the formula... It amazed me while at a Hack Rally that even the old timers only responded with dropped jaws when asked the question about suspension..
I have changed my Ohlin springs to a 500lb rider, and this has made a world of difference...
If there is a thread for that discussion let me know. I am sure TwinTwin will be happy to divuldge the formula for perfect handling!
Be well... Ara & Spirit
