    Hi guys,

    I am a relative new owner & member with a T160, but located over in the colonies (Canada). Bike needed work to return to the road and has been “quite a challenge” this last few weeks to complete, but now we seem to be ready for the “official” safety test & getting licence plate etc. Rear suspension feels rough and I was looking to buy replacement  Hagon or NJB units. Apart from personal preferences, can anyone offer  advice as to which make suits the bike better?

    Thanks, Bob

    I fitted Progressive suspension units and fork springs to my T150V which were a big improvement on the tired originals. The bike handles well and is compliant on poor surfaces. Note the rear units are a little wider so need persuading to fit. I bought mine from LP Williams a few years ago, dunno if they still stock them.

    I fitted some Hagon shocks with adjustable damping. If you look on their website they are made to be fitted “upside down” Apart from looking odd (to me) they restrict the clearance to the rear brake rod. If you speak to them they will make them the “right way up” at no extra cost. I don’t know if the adjustable damping is a bit unnecessary but occasionally I carry luggage and camping gear when I turn the damping and preload up a bit. The ones without damping adjustment do have preload adjustment.

    Mine seemed a big improvement but I was comparing them with 90,000 mile originals that had leaked most of the oil out.

    Thanks guys for the inputs. – They are appreciated, I just found out  that the NJB units are not fitted with progressive springs, so will not be going that route. Looks like the Hagons have it!
