I know Ackers has had his 800 done. I imagine it would be similair to the 675.Has anyone done anything to the suspension on the 675 (revalve, replace)? I feel it definitely needs to be changed, it doesn't like any bumps.
Yeah had plenty of bikes and done this but more chasing info on what people have done if anything and if they have had much gains out of the stock suspensionwhen ever you get a bike, new or second hand, put aside some money to get the suspension 'tuned' to you, your riding style, your weight, road/track/touring etc. It may mean adjusting the existing suspension (as provided by the factory) or replacing parts such as rear spring, rear shock, front fork springs, fork oil, ride height, distance through triple clamps forks protrude etc . With the exception of rider training it is the best investment you can do to your bike.
Yeah I know what u are saying. Lucky for me im the 'standard' weight (80kg) for most bike suspension. My b3 just has the basic sag/preload set up for me. I suppose my question should be, is it worth spending money on the stock suspension because its budget in nature? Im ringing my suspension guy to see his experience too, but I was wondering if anyone on here had fiddled with there'sThe obvious question is have you had your bike set up for you with the stock suspension? If this is done then your initial question is relevant. If not then perhaps go down this path first. You should also include your weight as if you are 94 kg then the changes done by someone weighing 65 kgs are irrelevant to you. Also consider rider experience and where they are riding. A bike which feels great for commuting may feel pretty ordinary on the twisties and really bad on the track. All associated with how close to the limits of the suspension you are riding (rider experience) and the ability of another rider to offer comparisons. There are a heap of riders who have performance changes done to their bike and rave about them when in actual fact they can't pick the differences (placebo effect).
