suspension upgrade?

Not mine and not an eBay ad but worth mentioning I guess.

For the RC owner on a budget...these have to ne better than stock.

Ha, someone wants $2000 for a set of used Ohlins with a blown seal and a nice scrape on one of the tubes, and they don't have the superbike valves? wtf?

The bad part is that those forks were about the same new.




I'm always right.

The best way to spend 8 grand on getting the RC to handle better? Get another bike.

I know you aren't completely serious, so pardon my cynicism. I feel that most people wouldn't be able to get anywhere near their money's worth out of those forks. Most would be better off spending seven grand on track time and one grand on suspension, I know I'd rather do that.
