Hi all,
I’m running a Hedingham HUB (think XL weight). Should I expect to uprate the standard rear shock on my K? If so what improvements will I notice? What do others do?
Thanks for the help as always, Stu

If that's the original rear shock then it will be completely shot by now. Try Realm Engineering: http://www.ramshox.com/ Call them and talk to them. You also might want to talk to Adge first as he should be able to give you chapter and verse on how the tub will react. PM me if you've lost his number.

Oh yes - and I finally nuked Richard Jefferies' website off the face of the internet today with the help of his (ex) hosting company. Just got to put a holding page up now Very Happy

Thanks Dai. Good luck with the tech and as I have said before, if there is anything I can do to help with the new enterprise PM me. Cheers, Stu.

Hedingham Sidecars changed hands about eighteen months ago. My best mate (the guy I went to India with) bought the company and is in the process of redesigning chassis and suspension for some of the tubs (bodies). My part - purely voluntarily - is to look after the tech side of the company. I also build the wiring looms for the sidecars. I've been wiring motorcycles for years and it's fairly pointless him (Adge) doing them when I can build and ship them quicker than he could make one. It's his company; I just muscled in to make his life easier.

Dai, 
Ordered from Ramshox. Definitely going to have to sell a bike soon.
I’ll fit it once I’ve tested my cleaned injectors.
Cheers, Stu

Let us know how you go with that shock. On my previous outfit I had the standard shock which when worn, showed some lateral movement which is not great with a single sided swing-arm. I had it rebuilt with help from Charlie 99 and it was a significant improvement, though not exactly the bee's knees.
I'll start off with the stock shock on my new project but have an idea I'll be looking to replace it not too far down the track

I have that quite heavy duty BiTubo available, that I was using on my RS, replaced with a Progressive Suspension-brand last October. Did I leave it with Charlie, because he'd see more of you than I would whilst away? If not, it's in me storage shed in Beenleigh. I'll be back for a spell in several months.

TWB I can't remember!
At the moment I'm busy trying to finish the bodywork and arrange to have the chair fitted to the bike, so handling issues are a way down the track. I'll ask Charlie when I see him though, now that he only lives down the road. Very Happy
