Forks and shock. P30 progressive for the shock. Do the job, drop straight in, no issues.
Price including tool. Works well, though it was fitted along with re-valving.
Forks were just a basevalve re-valve at this stage. Stock was almost rigid on braking bumps, so completely changed the stack to get some compliance.
Rear shock....that's another story. Fixed the seized rebound adjuster, well, had to break it to get it out, as the rod was seized too and the adjuster wouldn't come out passed it. Stupidest design ever. Freed up the rod and made a new adjuster out of stainless.
Changed the primary piston compression stack to a 2 stage. Stiffened the rebound a little for the new spring.
The secondary piston has the smallest ports ever, which is kinda silly as all the oil must pass through it when the suspension is compressed and the needle blocks the bypass.
Drilled out the holes, and joined the pairs into an oval (see pic) Flipped the piston so the larger holes became the compression and the smaller (though now as large as the primary piston rebounds) became rebound. Re-calculated the stacks for the different diameters and to help with the 'kick' that it had.
Rebuilt with a new skf seal head and ipone fluid.
Much better-subject to getting it on a real rough track.
Fitted along with a DEP silencer as the stocker was fairly beat up.
Was a bit tricky to fit...the pipe was ok, but the silencer pipe hit the shock spring, had to put a spacer under the front silencer mount to make it clear.
Much more power lower down, and a smoother hit, still plenty mid and top too.
Sounds much more '2 strokey' too.
4 stars because of the fitting issue.
See pipe notes.
