    Daytona 955 forks clicking

    I recently bought a 2001 daytona 955i which is absolutely fantastic.the only problem so far though is that the front suspension clicks when pumping the forks up and can also feel it through the bars if going over heavy bumps.the p. o had the forks really soft so I have adjusted them to be a bit firmer but the clicking is still present.the p.o also had the forks rebuilt my maxton around 10k ago.i can't feel any play in the steering head bearings so is it just that the forks need rebuilt again? Or is this just normal?any good ...

    RS 125 Front Forks

    Hi allRecently got a mint 2001 RS125, having alot fun on it and going for my test soon, however, its all fun until i come on to a bumpy stretch of road and the front end is horrible, tank slappers are often common if im riding at a fair speed. To me the front forks seem too stiff, especially compared to my mates 2006 RS125. Seen as though can't adjust the front forks on the RS125 what is they i could possibly do? My dad's metioned about changing the fork oil to something a little lighter, but i aren't sure ...

    KTM 950 SM Suspension Setup

    HelloLast year I bought a Ktm 950 sm 2006 and I love it!The previous owner had the suspension set up to very stiff sports setting and although it works well with the bike, the setting is a bit too stiff for me.I am 5' 7" and the height of the bike is also an issue for me. I can manage but sometimes struggle, for instance at bike rallies on wet slippery surfaces.As well as some advise on softening the suspension, I am wondering if anything can be done with the suspension to lower the bike slightly?Any help or advice will ...
