new suspension - boxer cup

Postby NewbeeBMW » Thu Apr 01, 2021 9:31 pm

just bought new nitron front and rear suspension for the boxer cup, nitron had the correct sizes for the bike at the factory went for the r3 for the rear which might be overkill but the r2 was only 90 quid cheaper, look forward to them being built, sent and fitted in around 4 weeks time.

Sounds good. Let us know your thoughts after fitting them.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

certainly will do, only 2 hesitations -

maybe should have got the preload adjuster but was convinced by the shop i didnt need it

I lose the adjuster on the handle bar yolk for the front.

once off ill get the original shocks rebuilt over time.
