My Yamaha WR450 [ El Diablo ] was taken apart today so that the shocks on both ends of the bike could be lowered by 2 inches. The Yamaha sure looked pitiful laying there in pieces, but I assured El Diablo that this was all for its own good. That it's kind of like neutering your dog, the dog certainly isn't going to like it but it makes it more likely that you will keep the dog around and give it a happy healthy life. And that's the way it's going to work for El Diablo, yes it won't be as tall as it used to be but it will be more likely that I will keep it around if it doesn't throw me off as much.
I'm glad I got Matt, the owner of RG3 suspension, to do this job for me. I've had a chance to talk to him for a while now and he's not only knowledgeable about motorcycles and how they operate but he cares about his business and wants people to know that everyone he deals with gets treated fairly and honestly and rides away not only a customer but a friend.
