It won't stay that way for long David, all the Betor's I've had soon leak. When they stop leaking they're not bad ! Rockshocks or Falcon's seem to be most popular here in the UK,can you get them over with you ?

I've been a Falcon man for a long time Jon and yes Falcons and Rockshocks are popular here too

Yes that's true, because they ran better without that horrible triangle muffler and there was nothing better available to replace it with. The clubfoot was not available until later on when vehicle noise laws around the world were coming into force. Your bike will probably not pass a noise test without additional muffling beyond the main muffler
