You could have a bit of truth there, the suspension will sag and break-in like any other moving part. I lowered a brand new Bandit for someone, after three years it had softened enough that I had to raise it again. All be it not back to standard but in-between.I found a cure for the hard suspension on sunday......ride it like you stole it
Hmmm I weigh 59kgs so don't think I'm going to make much of an impression on breaking in the suspension - I've got it on the lowest setting! Perhaps I need to start taking lots of luggage around with me, house bricks etcYou have to bear in mind that manufacturer's also have to build a bike which may carry 2x 120+ kgs people so if 1 person who weighs 70 kgs is the only person who rides the bike it stands to reason they will find the suspension a tad firm!
It looks beautifull!!! We are all waiting for your thorough report.Ok guys and gals Rear shocker arrived earlier, beautifully made etc, looks too nice to put on the bike,
Came on time, well packed and with an adjuster (the black item) and full instructions on how to fit to the Scrambler and instruction book should you need to alter anything,
Just need to fit it tomorrow, then give it a workout
Ooo ta Graham, we'll have a steak pie tooWhen I have this fitted you can have a test ride on mine, just need to swap your seat over,
It may give you some idea, But they'd make one set up for your weight
Instructions?!!!and full instructions on how to fit to the Scrambler
I think your right, it's a budget priced bike with moderate performance and so fitting expensive, high end suspension is overkill really. The bike needs better susension for sure, but it needn't be expensive - simply proportionate to the price and performance of the bike.The price is great - here in the States, and it's really all the Scrambler needs, IMO - a full-on race unit would be a waste.
