Re: [St] Fork service/Race Tech


As mentioned previously by all means replaced the fork springs and I highly recommend the rear shock as well.  I weight around 210 lbs and my wife ways around 150 lbs and two up I was dragging the fairing and pegs on a regular basis before I invested in a new rear shock.  It made a world of difference.  I still have not replaced the fork springs  on the Sprint but I intend to this winter.  I previously race teched my VFR750 and it made a world of difference.  For anyone who rides two up very much this is an essential investment in my opinion.
