Suzuki / Front fork question. 1978 RM400c.
« on: August 20, 2018, 05:40:50 PM »
My front forks have two top out springs under the damper rod... a short one like most bikes but then a long one under it.
Is that normal? I cant tell from a parts diagram as there is no part number for it and the picture is not clear.

Suzuki / RM400 flywheel weight?
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:38:07 AM »
Its a great torquey engine but I would like to smooth out the power delivery on my 1978 RM400. I think a bit of flywheel weight would be perfect.
Is there anything out there that would bolt on and work?.. eg PE? other year model? etc.. ???
Or is the only option adding weight to my existing one? If so does anyone have experience with this mod?

B...What is the best value for money option for twin shocks price and performance in mind? I cant justify spending a thousand bucks on shocks..preferably half that would be nice. ... 8)

Vintage Track / Solid rear stuts for dirt track?
« on: March 17, 2018, 02:12:16 PM »
So Iv picked up a new twin shock toy (RM400), the rear shocks need rebuilding and I wont have a chance to get them done before broadford bonanza. Instead of bouncing around I was thinking of just fitting some solid struts instead of rear springs, whats peoples thoughts??
secondly whats the best 18'' rear trye for going around in circles? Iv got a old kenda but it not great.
