    YSS or Bitubo

    Looking to maybe upgrade the suspension on my Triumph T120

    Don't want to spend a fortune as it's not intended to be a race bike so forget ohlins etc
    Don't want piggy backs either to keep the look classic

    I've found a couple of choices for shocks which look good for a similar price

    The YSS are slightly cheaper than the Bitubo and have progressive rate springs so are maybe better technically too, I just don't know the brand very well

    So badge snobisme aside YSS or Bitubo ?

    Have you considered Ikon (what used to be called Koni)?

    Andres

    Edit: I just went onto their home page looking for Guzzi shocks and there at the top of the page was stuff about a complete T120 kit (front progressive springs as well as rear shocks).

    Noticed it was delivered with the shocks set to minimum preload, 1 out of 5

    Set them to 3 today and it's made quite a difference, has quickened up the steering a shit load

    Gonna try on 4 tomorrow, might stick with the bogo suspension after all

    So you folks with new Bonnie's, if you haven't RTFM the tool is inside the right hand panel, use it, you will be pleased you did
