Just come back from 6 days in the cedarburg and tankwa on the rally 2500km later. Bike was an absolute dream in the technical stuff did the old postal route from East to west so tankwa to wuppertal with ease such a pleasure in the loose rocky sections and just floats through the sand. Fuel consumption average for the trip 34km/l

Bike is awesome, but I need to know who/ where I can turn to get the suspension upgraded asap?

I am going to start researching what the options are.

Ohlins makes a very nice shock with a remote reservoir and full adjustability. Comes with an extra spring for heavy load applications.  Martin Paetzold reckons around R12k  :eek7:

Then  Hyperpro imported by DMD (Linex) has a replacement fork spring and 2 shock options on their catalogue.  I'm waiting for pricing.   Will give Hilton Hayward a ring to see what he can do as well.

Once the boing boing is sorted it will be a mountain goat, very chuffed with mine.

I expect the Hyperpro route to be around 10k

For springs only or the whole shock ?

Spring and air bleeders for the front.  Whole shock on the rear

I'll put some higher bars, foam grips and a luggage rack on it now.   Then ride it for a few months to decide if the chassis/ engine would benefit from a really expensive suspension upgrade.
