Thailand’s Riders are harsh on their bikes and expect the best performance from they’re machines…..Unfortunately, as individuals are various sizes, shapes and weights: The front forks need to be modified specifically for the individual’s ergonomics and performance expectations. We often hear of vibrations, and poor handling on brand new models! It’s sad, but it’s true.
Many people believe that the Bike was made exclusively for them, but actually it was massed produced and it was not sold to them with custom springs, cartridges, and in many cases the correct weight of fork oil. Many bikes in Thailand are sold with transmission fluid from the automotive divisions and are a poor substitute for front fork performance. Many bikes are still being produced with old tech from the 1970’s Right Side Up with only one fork spring….. This is where the manufacturer can save money and keep the overall price down to compete for Thailand’s market share.
