Need some advice on suspension upgrades...
Down here in India, road surfaces are nowhere close to as smooth as those in the US or Down Under. Especially within city limits, they're uneven and rough with potholes popping up fairly frequently. Was wondering what would be the right changes to make to the Bird's suspension to make the ride more comfortable on these roads. Regular riding isn't at very high speeds - rarely over 120-140 kmph - and knee-scraping is a complete no-no. I usually ride solo most of the time.
Long distance trips (roughly around 2,000 miles / 3,200 kms each) would be once or max twice in a year, with a 2 or 3 box givi setup at the back; either solo or two-up.
The front suspension usually takes the most beating. Though i figure if i'm making the change, it may make sense to upgrade both; the front springs for sure and perhaps the rear spring while continuing to use the stock shock absorber.
Any help would be much appreciated.
