    I'm putting a set of 35mm Betors on my T140. Looking for setup tips, spring rates, damping improvements, etc.
    I'll be using the Triumph conical hub. Obviously I need to fabricate a brake mount, fender mounts, and a steering stem.

    My Triumph forks are leaking and you have to replace the whole lower leg to fix the bushings. The Triumph forks are harsh and don't work very well. The Betors are lighter and have better damping.
    Typical period mod for flat tracking and scrambling.
