Now that I have my $200 cv80 up and running pretty well (I will post a picture when I figure out how), I would like to dive into the fiddly bits. Although it starts on the first kick and runs great, it has almost 10,000 miles on it, and the suspension has had quite a workout in that time.
I can bottom out the front forks pretty easily just by standing over the bike and pushing down firmly on the handlebars, is this normal?
The suspension does ok with just me on it, but I would be concerned if I was carrying a passenger. It is also a little shaky over rough cobblestone, but I suppose I should just expect that.
Anyone have a nice connection with some NOS yamaha shocks, or should I look for some low mileage used stuff?
