TY250R Pinky Suspension woes

Postby escoe11 » Mon May 24, 2010 5:16 pm

I need to rebuild or
replace the rear shock on my pinky - does anyone know of someone of note who can do this?
Also, I probably need to fit a heavier spring to the shock as I weigh about 100kgs, any ideas?
Front also could probably do with heavier springs too.
Any ideas appreciated

There are people who advertise on this website who would be able to fix your shock and probably be able to supply different fork springs also.
I've ridden a standard pinky when I weighed about 95kg and the fork action and rear shock action seemed fine to me at the time. Sometimes with trials forks using a heavier weight oil and restoring the original preload (to compensate for the springs getting shorter with use) is all you need to do to have them working well.
The standard shock spring too may be fine once the shock damping is working.
