Suspension Question

Well, after over 23,000, I think it's time for a suspension upgrade. Not sure if I want to throw $3,000 towards forks and a shock.

SO. . .I was wondering if it's cost effective, or even possible to rebuild my factory suspension with new innards from say, Ohlins, Racetech, Penske, etc?

Still a "green-horn" when it comes to the upgrade stuff. . .

Take a look at Cogent Dynamics. Rick does very nice fork work, at reasonable rates. He can also provide a rear shock service, or new replacement. The Penske I have came from him. Excellent customer service as well.
