so your ? is where to have suspension work done? you will need stiffer springs, is the bike setup with SM wheels /tires? how about big brakes? you also may want to consider a USD conversion to cr or crf forks.

16" wheels oversized brake, stock forks and springs, stock rear suspension. the bike is set up supermoto now, i want stiffer less spungy ride. i was thinking about buying the parts off the web but most of the sites list mx springs or dual sport springs, not supermoto, which is a little confusing figuring out the best and affordable choice. and also where in the city, i dont have the space or tools or time right now, to have the parts put on.

thanks again

16" or 17" wheels? 17" is the norm for SM since you get the biggest variety of tires. You need to first get the springs for your weight and then if you want to spend the $$$$ get the suspension revalved for ya.
