Re: Sasquatch shock rebuild for Wee--Info, pls?

Vishnu: I'll second Scott's offer to let you ride mine to compare against yours. I've done the fork upgrade with the 0.95 springs and Gold valves from RaceTech, and have the low mileage DL1K shock on the rear. Prolly not as good as an aftermarket piece, but better than stock.

One other thing that most folks think helps the Wee's handling is to raise the forks 15 mm in the triple clamp (10 mm if ABS-equipped). A fork brace helps, too.

I always get a chuckle when I see the lengths Strom riders will go to make their machines 'handle like a sport bike' but they're so much fun to ride in the twisties that it makes it worth the trouble and expense....at least to some of the loony-tunes I hang with!!!
