First topic message reminder :
I decided to get a little work done on the Swing at a small local bike shop. Had him install the HyperPro fork springs. What a difference! This is what Honda should spec at the factory.
I always used to get a big clunk when I hit the curb coming into the driveway. No more. I think the old springs spent half their time bottomed out. Turns also seem easier to handle - I can hold the turn easier than before. While I only put about 15 miles on the new springs, I think it is a big improvement.
BTW, when I called the local Honda shop, they wanted $123 PER LEG, for a total of $256. Seals were $17 each. I found the seals here
for $10 each, and paid the mechanic $70 to rebuild the fork.
I think I got a good deal - hopefully the legs won't fall off one day!
