                  You don't have to resize it. You can hardly see that thing.

                        If you make a mistake on your post you can edit it rather than post another post.

                          does your ohlins make much difference or does it make the front feel week,have you had the front resprung for your weight and the rear for that matter the reason i ask i want to do mine fancy doing some track time on it but the rear is poor on the standard spring have changed the front oil weight to 15weight and increased the levels of it and the front end has good sag with me on it and good compression damping also but thats it.

                            Season greetings Pat,
                            I cant comment on the Ohlins performance yet as I'm still rebuilding the bike, but its got to be 10 times better than the original shock which I can only say was like riding a "Space Hopper" and very scary.
                            I originally was going to use a Hagon shock as they are only in Essex but decided to spend a bit more and get the Ohlins from Harris performance.

                            On that note are you going to the Performance bike show at the Excel centre in London in Feb?

                            As to the front end I'm going to use the CBR 600 F3 internals into the
                            Hawk forks.
