Cheers.
Thats interesting that, but to be honest I'm wanting if I can, a simple fix with out costing me, useing what I have already.
I'll not be belting down any heavy tracks on this bike, nice and easy for me.
Thanks for the link though it looks very hardcore.

Great stuff

No going back now, I've utterly buggered up the elastomer mount and still haven't got the elastomer out.

Starting to lose patience.
Walked away, having a brew... And a think...

The proflex shocks are a nightmare, all the shafts are corroded. I'm in need of two, one for my crosslinks and one for the rear, but because my frame is a small, only an NR 2 will fit on the back.

Noleen J6 in the states have new noleens, and I've kind of told myself that's the only viable route now, think I've got 5 knackered shocks here now, wasting money hand over fist on second hand stuff.

I've just enquired about another second hand NR2 on ebay for the crosslinks . . . here's hoping.

Nolen J6 for new Noleens

Risse, crosslink replacement shocks

Will the rear suspension set up work off a Proflex 657 on my 855 set up.
I'm looking and can't really tell.
