New springs, emulators, chain and sprockets
Well, my Wee has been run hard by me for almost 2 years now. The front was soft and noodly, and the chain was making one hella wicked racket, not mentioning needing to be tightened about every 1500 km or so.
So, I ups and orders me an EK 525 chain, and sprocket set from Blair, and a Super Brace, Racetech Cartridge Emulators and springs, and a Superbrace. Paid a good local shop to put everything on yesterday.
The front end is so much better now. No more diving under heavy braking, track true through corners, much nicer low speed handling (especially the U-Turn I make in my bldg parking lot every evening when I get home), and a quiet, blissfully silent drive chain.
I am happy.
Thanks for the prompt service Blair.
Anyone else who is not convinced of the front end upgrades, all I can say is doit. It ain't that expensive and it is soooo much better!
