    Default Looking for a good, honest shock/suspension 'ustad' in Lahore?

    My bike is in desperate need of a suspension rebuild. So if you know any honest person, pls reply.
    And can anyone tell me what's the going rate for a rebuilt? And is it better to get a new suspension instead of rebuilding? Thanks.

    which bike is it ?
    i had rebuilt my 70 front shock (seal replace and havoline oil refill .. they are now slightly better then when they were leaking profously but no where near as comfortable.

    if you go for seal+oil use porper oil .. and dont let him do juggar by placeing extra nut and washers as that drastically reducess the travel of shocks..

    new shocks are recomended for tension free ride for next few years.

    It's a rare bird, Yamaha Super Deluxe 90 model 2001. Actually brother, I intend to rebuilt the rear spring suspension, my bike's front forks are absolutely fine. Is the procedure the same for both shock and fork? Sorry, I've never changed and/or rebuild my bike's suspension so I've very limited knowledge on the subject...

    for 70 rear suspension cannot be rebuilt as they are permanently sealed no local ustaz does it (as per my search ) ..

    not sure about yours ..

    It's basically a 2001 YB100 with a different speedo meter, indicators, smaller headlight and "central locking" (< LOL) like Honda Deluxe 125! Rest is same, same chassis, engine, suspension etc...

    fork oil is a regular service item and needs to be replaced at correct intervals, check your manual for correct level of quantity and then refill. Dont guess it.

    For rear, buy new items. If you can find a really good person who knows how to rebuild dampers then you can get them reworked but that is only possible if your items are in good condition in the first place.
