    New guy!

    Hello, I just signed up to the forum but I've been lurking for a while. I'm trading in my 2013 Ninja 300 ABS SE towards a TW200 at the end of August or September because I just can't be a road-only-rider and I've wanted one of these bikes since I was about 5 or 6 years old and they were a brand new model. I recently saw the post about the rear shock change and it has me worried I won't be able to stiffen up the rear suspension. I'm a pretty big dude at 250 so I was planning on doing the suspension after I'd had it a while to see what I really need. Anyway, long story longer, I'm excited to see what I can learn about these sweet little bikes!

    Edit: I just realized I put this in the wrong place. Sorry!

    Welcome. Since this is "technically" your first post, why not be in the technical section eh? No one should really care after all accidents happen (which is why they created "Depends" right?)

    Have a fun time on the forum and even more fun on the trail with your TW.

    You've got a few months. Check into whether anything else was changed. If nothing worthwhile, and there is no news of the shock being vastly superior; buy a new 2016. Save money and be able to swap shock springs at your leisure.
