Did you upgrade the front suspension at all? Is it really necessary?

Thanks

I dont understand, after he repeatedly told you to not buy his product, but you still bought it anyways. I guess that a good way to do business right? Even though there is no diffence between what you have other than build quality and a sweep valve. You live Florida for crying out loud, the only way you can appreciate your shocks is take them out to the Dragon.

Glad you are happy with your purchase.

Wanker!!!

I go to the Dragon twice a year , lol , but we have curves in Florida and terrible maintained roads where you will appreciate a good suspension , I am very happy with the JRI as like I said I wanted to be back in a 12" shock with a sweep valve and not give up the length of stroke

So since we live in FL we are not allowed to have better shocks, lol......

I loved JRi when they were American made and Tim was there , they are now Chinese made Tim resigned and your buddy Marcus was fired , if you want to get it on Slowguy I'll post your emails to Howard calling them cheap Chinese pieces of shit or did you forget about that
