    I definately need a new shock, the stock one is to spongy for me and has no adjustments. Can anyone tell me how much better the elka is over the adjustable dnm? Not sure if I should buy the dnm in the next few weeks, or save for a couple of months and get the elka..

    That is cheap as, let me know how it all feels when done. Have you ridden a bike with a elka? Really want a comparison from someone that has ridden them all...

    So after a huge week of riding (clocked 28hrs just this week) my bike is stuffed AGAIN! I can hear the clutch basket tapping against the crank gear, it has a stuffed head bolt, and its smoking that bad its not funny. I also have false neutral issues throughout the whole gearbox :( . Im leaning towards replacing with a anima, then i wont have to wring its neck as much to keep up to the jap bikes. If anyone is selling second hand pm me..
