Hey there everyone!
Was wondering if I could pick the brains and experience of all you track day junkies out there... I'm at the point that I have to upgrade my suspension as I feel that the OEM stuff is not allowing me to expand my skill set as rider.
...wanted to know from those who are experienced in the track day "business" what would be the first on the list to be upgraded; FORKS or SHOCKS??
My plan is to get aftermarket components and re-use the current forks and shock bodies, but considering that this will be a bit of an investment, I'll have to do this one at a time... And therefore not sure what I should play with first...
I've been keeping the forks to the best of what I can, so oil is changed regularly, springs are still ok (but too soft), all fork and dust seals are ok. As for the Shock, I've never done anything to it, and chances are it has not been serviced EVER...
From what I can see, my forks are bottoming out and I pretty much have the Pre Load all in, not to the maximum, but as far as one should go before needing to start changing things... As far as shock is concerned, I can't tell exactly what it is doing, but looking at my tyre wear, it isn't doing much
Anyway, without getting into much detail, just wanted to poke everyone's brain and personal experience as to what would be the best thing to do first (and why).
Thank you all!
