I have been riding my 2018 FE 501 for about two years now, and I have never been too excited over the front suspension on it, so I finally decided to have the front forks reworked. I did some research on different fixes and also did some research on the nearest suspension gurus in my area. I finally went with an old and trusted shop that I have always used in the past, partially because of the past good service I had from them on all my dirt bikes, and partially because they had a good value for the dollar, as Bob Bell came up with his own version of dampening mods for the Explorer forks that were a lot less expensive than other kits. So the forks are up at Precision Concepts in Riverside, while poor Mr.501 sits in the garage with nothing to do and nowhere to go. In a couple of days, i should be able to go back up there and pick up the much improved boingers to slap back on the bike and try out. Can't wait!
