Re: This rotten weather is great for refurbishing the old TBS
- I replaced my trophy monoshock with an adjustable hagon unit about a month ago and it made a huge difference to handling of the bike, and I'll change my TBS unit with one when it's spent. The KYB is great right now, only about 5K miles on it so I'm hoping it will be a while before I need to change it, but I have already made the decision given how good the Hagon unit is. It was also a direct swap, no installation fitmint problems at all.
I had to give some thought and get some help from the Triumphrat.net group with placement of the remote adjuster, but even that went smoothly with past experience input.
