I've just changed the rear shock and spring.  Whilst I was at it, I changed the fork oil and it really needed changing!

My MkII CBF has 30k on the clock, and when two up with luggage, it kept bottoming out.

Bought and fitted a Wilbers Shock Absorber and spring, made to our specifications and fitted with a remote hydraulic pre-load.  The ride is like magic, well worth the money, time and effort.
Sourced the unit from MH Racing (

I had trouble with main stand grounding on bends (wallowing) especially with 2 up..... initially i thought it was the rear shock, but I came to realize it was the progressive front fork springs that came as standard on my Mk1 .....I bought some ohlin front springs and problem was solved. That worked for me.....its even better in a straight line now. :046:

Thanks for all your comments, I have ordered a Showa shock so will see what difference that makes, will also get my fork oil changed and see.

Really appreciate all the comments and direction!!
