    Question 90 R 100 GSPD suspension upgrade

    hello all, I would like to upgrade my suspension, I am thinking Ohlins on the rear, ( the basic one that you have to adjust with a spanner) and I am not sure about the front. I am setting the bike up to ride backcountry discovery route type stuff. what do you think? Chuck

    I added a Wilbers shock (adjust with spanner) from Ted Porter.
    Rebuilt front end with Race Tech Gold Valves and new springs (local friend/BMW mechanic did the work).

    & it made the world of difference. You will be glad you upgraded!
    Go for it!

    Good idea about the race tech on the front, Forgot I had that on my list to do. I put an ohlins With the adjustment knob... MaxBMW had them on for a decent but expense price several years ago. I like it, works well.

    thanks, yesterday I ordered the basic Ohlins shock, and a Racetech emulator kit, new Racetech springs rated to my weight, and all the seals to do the job. the shop wants $300 if I bring them the bike or $150 if I remove the forks. I am wondering how critical the set up on the forks is. I would like to do my own work but I would be learning as I haven't done this job before.any thoughts? thanks Chuck

    morning all, since there seems to be a lack of opinion on the fork rebuild I shall press on, what could go wrong?
