I'd think Hyosung would make good mention of that, like the Japanese and Italians do when they use suspension from Showa, Ohlins, Works Performance etc...

I'll add to that, the Hyosung uses a brake caliper that's a knockoff of (or possibly made by) the Nissan 2 pot used on a bunch of old school and smaller Honda's like the Rebel and Nighthawk. I don't know of any Showa inverted forks that are made for that small of a caliper...

Im going based off the site above.

also remember these bikes are pieced together; until they have the manufactoring ability, most things will be wholesaled w suppliers.



And i have several front ends to put on it if I end up being too heavy for it myself This 2fiddy will be ridden

Don't get me wrong, I think the front end from the factory is pretty decent. Better out of the box than the factory cartridge forks on my B12. Definitely get rid of the water thin fluid they put in there at the factory though. I weigh in around 235lbs and found the front to work well with 15wt.

If you max out the pre-load on the rear shock you'll be ok. I believe a few folks at Korider swapped to a CBR600 F3 shock to get a bit more spring and damping.

I had a comet 250, 2005 or so. My friend is still commuting on it daily with no issues what so ever. Only thing I disliked was the stiff rear shock, sucky stock tires, and speed wobble above 92 MPH.

Maybe if that wasn't the shittiest video ever it would be interesting.

Now a turbo GT250, that's something I would like to see!
