I got a 2005 TW and I don't think the forks have ever been touched. It just passed 4000 miles, so it was not ridden a lot before I got it. I recently took it out to the desert and it bounced me around pretty bad. So I am looking to learn about shock mods (rear already has a heavier spring and it does not seem to bottom). Heavier springs, oil, after market mods. I am around 190 lbs and probably 20 lbs of gear.
