Just ordered a suspension upgrade for the Rappy.

- TCS non-reservoir front shocks
- Laeger +2 A-Arms
- TCS re-valve for my rear OEM reservoir shock
- Braided brake lines

Got it from rivermobster/ATV Suspension Tech (GD.com sponsor).
Nice guy, great price.

Wanted reservoir fronts, but for the money I saved I could afford to have my rear shock revalved.

Can't wait for Pismo!

I can't wait to check out your suspension - I may need to do the same thing.

I've got until tomorrow to finalize the setup before it goes to TCS...am debating springing for the rezzie front shocks. But I'm not cetain that my style/level of riding is enough to justify it.

What do you guys think?

Rob, I don't think our style of riding justifies spending too much more for the rezzies. If we were racing, then hands down I go with the better of the shocks. I guess it boils down to dollahs - if its only a couple hundered more, maybe consider it.

Well, it is only a couple hundred...that I don't really have.
I think you're right...I'm overthinking it. I should just enjoy it when it arrives.

I should prolly put that couple hundred toward that little gennie you have anyways :D

Rob, I would save the money that you are going to put into the rear shock and get the ressie fronts. The rear shocks are very good and everyone I have talked to that have had them redone regret it, especially guys my size. Hear they spring them too much. Also, if you wanna do a nice long ride, the ressies will pay off in the end.
