Fork work 954
I've just found out there is a local guy here in Canberra who is a reputedly a suspension wizard and who comes recommended by my trusted mechanic.
He has quoted me AUD$350 (ride in, ride out) to fit Racetech springs and revalve using the stock bits. A coupla questions, the first being to Aussie .orgers
1) is $350 a good price?
2) should I bother to get low friction bushes etc fitted while the forks are apart?
Budget is an issue which is one reason I'm not bothering with gold valves, the other being that I've heard mixed reports about them.
The bike has 17000 klm on it and stiction doesn't seem too bad to me. I do the odd track day, weekend scratching, commuting and a bit of touring.
I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandpa
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.
