The only thing that I'm still not satisfied on the '01 CR250 is the suspension. After spring changes/clicker setting fiddling/oil level changes (20" wheel even helped some), I've improved it considerably, but still not quite satisfied. (biggest complaint is that it feels very nervous in the woops, although it never really does anything strange. Anyway, I thought I'd send my suspension out to see if it can be improved further. I am a vet intermediate, but money is not much of an issue..only "value" is. I have been trying to find someone out there who has experience with the Honda/Showa works Fork kit. I can get it a bit cheaper here in Japan than what Factory Connection sells it for, but I wonder if it is really worth it.. whether there is a big enough difference. I had the opportunity to ride a factory Honda 250 with works Kabaya's last year. My first & only experience with true works suspension. My impression was simply that it felt like any ordinary good suspension that was set up plush, but had fantastic bottoming resistance at the same time.. the best of both worlds.. no other magic than that. With the stock forks, I only seem to be able to set up for one or the other. I would gladly pay mucho $$ to have what those works Kayaba's offered. Jermey, or anyone, have any advice about whether that expensive kit will get me there or I'm wasting my money??
