    suspension

    Hello all, been following this site for a while now, it helped me decide that the tdub was the bike for me ( thanks). Happy to say im now a 91, needs a little tlc but all in all a good bike. the wuestion ive got for you all has do with suspension. me being 6' 215 im debating on upgrading front forks (seals are shot anyways) wondering if the fork solution kit on pro cycle is worth it, was thinking the .70 kgmm set up. Other ? Rear suspension, best solution to stay away from bottoming out... thst should do it for now, thanks all

    Best to replace with an O-ring chain, and do sprockets while you are at it.

    Agree, never replace just a sprocket or chain, replace all three together at the same time.

    Hello and welcome! I have the springs from ProCycle, I think they're well worth the $$, I didn't ad the emulators. As for the chain, I agree, replace the sprockets too.

    Procycle springs front and rear makes it a whole new bike and it actually feels like a real motorcycle now.

    55 tooth rear sprocket. Try it stock for a while and see how you like it.
