Big guy suspension set up
I'm a newest member of the WEE community. bought a 07 with 21k miles on it, for a steal at $2000.
the only bikes I've had before was a 03SV650, and a 05gsxr600. I sold the gsxr in 06 with the birth of my first son. Now that they are older I wanted something to ride again. I was looking for something to commute back roads to work, gravel/pavement mix, and take on some light trails locally.... nothing to gnarly. I would say 50%gravel, 30%paved, 20% trails. I do want to make a few trips into the mountains of WV to take some nice overland trails threw the mountains.
I'm a "Big Dude" about 6'0 240lbs. right now it has givi hard saddle bags, give extended windshield, and 2" bar raisers. I'm looking for the right mods for me. instead of buying more luggage, or other things, I would like to make it ride better. I know on my sv, the suspension was set up for a 130lb rider, so I'm thinking that would be a good place to start.
I'm a fork brace from adventure tech, but I'm not sure if I could get some better sprigs for the front fork, or new combo for the back? or what to do first. I seek advice from the infinite wisdom I've seen on this forum!
