Andy was who came to my mind ive heard he was the man for suspension work. I really dont feel like laying in Ben Tuab unable to move my legs becuase the forks gave out again........ Gonna make sure the gets done right this time by the time i get the bike out of the shop I might be able to right it again!

Another option would be Marcus McBain at RPS: http://www.roadracinghelp.com/Start.htm

He's located NE side off the Beltway and Lake Houston area. Completely rebuilt my front forks, including NEW bushings, seals, straightening the shock tubes, custom length springs, and valved properly... then afterwards tuned at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I am extremely satisfied with his work and will try to get him more business, whether it be for a simple suspension tune or a rebuild with all the goodies. Did I mention that he is trying to build a professional bike track locally?

talk to Tim at FI. He's rockin a f4i with the hyper pro springs and rollin em far. I agree with Matt on the front end swap. I just haven't heard much good come from it. But you can find me a front rim for a 929.

thanks, Paw Paw

Yeah the springs do help with stoppies, I've always ran the stock springs on my bikes, but I've always had a liter bike front end and its been good enough for me.
