Send your suspension to Enzo!

What do they do to the suspension and how much does it cost$?$?

Grease everything - links, axles, head bearings.

Remove the chain guard on the swingarm and fix it solidly in place. I squished the little cup washer things and put Mr. Weld-it to glue it in place. If you don't, the thing moves around and wears a groove in the aluminum.

Wash and oil your air filter.

Send your suspension to Enzo!

no not enzo, i think you mean MCR Suspension (
