Dave you already had those forks, right? They just got a refresh or are they different now?


Yep, same old vanilla stock forks I've been punishing for 3 years. Rebuild is more accurate this time around. Refresh, new upper and lower bushings, stickers and magic dust

News from Mongolia;

Sounds like there's some serious shit going on over in the Suzuki camp so I thought I'd keep rollin. Pulled the motor out of the frame,

To do so, the shock has to be removed as it attaches to and levers on the back of the engine cases. This reminds me of my big gripe about the JRi shock. Spent $900 (at the time, less now) for a shock with a misfit clevis that requires it and the shock linkage to be relieved for clearance AND have 2 washers slipped in as spacers because it is too wide. Spent 2 years bugging JRi for their promised correct-fit clevis only to be told ultimately to forget it, they're not going to address the issue. It appears there is a ton of preload on the spring but it actually has a very short free height. Also made of a finer wire gauge so it doesn't coil bind due to short working length.

Here you can see the professional machine work on the clevis and the high-end washers used to center it over the porkchop.

And the similarly relieved shock chop,

Works well enough I guess, altho I saw nothing on the factory Yamaha's resembling this level of craftsmanship, ahem.
