Don't even start....
$92! Is that USD or CAD? In USD, they are available for half that price through online Honda part sources. FWIW, it's also on Amazon. This fan blade comes on a variety of Honda scooters and was never unique to the 4RT.
I’ll have a look later today if I can. I think I have the part number, the price was from my Montesa guy and in Canadian.
Cascade Motorsports ?
Bingo! He usually has everything on the shelf.
Ok I ordered one from the local Honda shop and 72.31 all taxes in.
So first ride with the fork spring and lift kit. Start with Im back up to about 210 . The forks are better with the 15 over spring. The rear. The rear is different , noticeably higher. I was able to back off the spring a little. I thought it would feel quicker. It doesn’t. It feels odd and makes you bend your knees more. I hate to bend my knees.
The bike feels heavy or im out of shape. Probably the front end feels heavy. So although it’s strange and slow and heavy I wad able to clean what I thought was our hardest section from last year Without walking it and I hadn’t ridden it since or before that trials. I cleaned a section i had ridden many times and never cleaned. I do think there is a loss in traction.
But the strangest thing is that it changes your body position . So for the first time the rear break feels right. So I decided to keep it for 5 hours of ride time before making a decision on if i like it. I think definitely better for dry big rock stuff. Took a loop on the mountain bike too
If the front feels heavy the rear is too high. You said it yourself.
If you don't like bending your knees, why do you ride trials? Asking for @lineaway.
A cute little Repsol followed me home today!
Just swapping a few goodies to the new bike from my old 4RT then she is up for sale.
That is always the trouble going to a bike store to get a new fan... end up seeing stuff you just can't do without - . Congrats on the new bike !
When you make multiple changes at one time, you will not know which is actually better or why. Take the linkage back to stock to see if the stiffer fork springs actually work. We change rear springs all the time. Usually we leave the front springs stock.
This one is actually a 2016 with about 5 hours on it, I’ve been working on a friend of mine to sell it to me for a while now!
Ha wondered why I saw your bike on Kijji. The suspension on the Repsol feels sweet compared to the standard model and I actually prefer the showa fork to the tech alloy fork on my 300rr.
Man you guys know how to rub it in. Thats ok. Im only 5 or 6 stimulus checks away from a 301.
Canadian is like what the heck is a stimulus check?
Stimulus? Isn’t that what you put in your wife’s drink?
When my friend bought this Repsol I tool it for a ride and I thought the suspension felt more plush than my standard. Will be riding later today....
I'm actually surprised some smartass hasn't yet replied with something like: "That 1500 lb capacity stand may not be enough."
So you had to?
I was waiting for that....
While your replacing parts, get the new kickstarter. Longer and less knife like, best non weight saving improvement ever.
