Hello all

I have a 77 Honda CJ360T, pretty much completely stock.

I would like to replace the rear springs and the forks with stiffer, meaner components. I am looking to do as much of this at home as possible; don't have the means to weld and I don't want to do any cutting and drilling if it can be avoided. I am hoping to just bolt stuff on.

Can anybody offer tips / tech advice, as well as whether parts from other, more readily available bikes (e.g. the CB 750) will be a direct swap?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a salvage yard that has motorcycles in your area? If so, just walk around with a caliper and tape measure, you should be able to find all kinds of springs for the rear.

The obvious problem with changing forks is compatability with brake/wheel/fender/axle. You just gotta look close at all that.

'Course you can always get stiffer springs for the stock forks, and there's no end of choices for aftermarket rear shocks, Works Performance, Progressive, etc. Look in the back of Cycle News.
