Wilbers

If thereís only one thing you can change on the bobber, in my opinion itís gotta be the rear shock.
Only thing I can say Itís the first time Iíve ridden without having to look out for potholes and manhole covers.
Changes the whole feel of the bike from 7/10 to 9/10.

Hi @JedKnight ,

I agree totally. When I first bought my Bobber the suspension was in the back of my mind 'one day' I said. I fitted my Wilbers about a year after my bike purchase, if I could go back and change anything it would have been the FIRST mod I would have done.

Now on my rides I just don't worry about pot holes and the like, the bike/Wilbers just soaks everything up.

Although I suspect my sprung seat it helping a little too..

Cheerio,

Roy

Yes thatís the one I put on, they set it for 97kg with clothing and 15kg baggage for when using hepco rear rack etc and 60/40% split for with/without luggage. You just tell them weights etc.
Iím no bike expert but you can tell 100% that it feels right.

I couldnít agree more, my wilbers has transformed a bike I loved to a bike I truly cannot describe in terms of satisfaction.

I have a hard saddle and it is totally fine all because the wilbers is tuned to perfection

Yep, got the triumph statement seat and still comfy, only done about 90 miles on it but no issues.

Used the SF filters, Uni Filter and Viba cover from the New York company A&J cycles, had to pay import tax but still about the same as trying diff UK suppliers, bought the Booster plug from UK though.
