I wouldnt throw cash into expensive upgrades while youre still paying on it.
Pay it off, then throw cash at it.

You dont need ohlins forks to get it back on the road.

I've seen used R/T forks going for 1500-1800.

To get prices from vendors from this site you'll probably going to have to call them up and mention MH. I doubt they are going to post pricing here on the forum.


Give the guys at Motorcycles Unlimited a call and ask about pricing. In the end it's going to most likely be them trying to set the forks up for you and doing any service work on them.

Don't waste your money on ÷hlins forks.

Your about my size, your R6 stock forks are FOR a person our size. Trust me, the stock forks are alot better then we give credit for, I've ran some pretty fast track times on stock forks with no problem.

If your forks are "fubar", get on wera and buy a new set for $225 and thrown some new oil in them (you won't beilive how much a difference that would make)

Also, if you're planning on getting R&Ts, I'd look around. Ohlins is running some deals right now. You can get a shock (TTX, I think) and some forks for a smoking deal.

Call Patrick to see if he's aware. If not, PM me. I'll give ya some info.

Ty,
Ohlins are the , but you can do just as well for less other than the "bling" factor.
Give me a shout and I can go over your options.

Thank you patrick. I will probably stop by tomorrow and talk to bout it because i have to go out that way. Yes i like the bling factor but i do plan on learning on how to ride the out of it. It is the first in many mods to come. I don't plan on really riding it until she is finished anyway.
