The SYM T2 front fork and rear suspension are kind soft. There are many Taiwanese test ride review report about it. I live in a area with many slopes and road bumps, the soft suspension system is definitely discount riding experience.
The SYM T2RC member introduce me to The Boy Motorcycles to fix the suspension issue. The shop owner, Ah Boy is recommending to service the fork and insert additional bush to improve the preload setting.
He try his best to tune the front fork for optimal performance. Amount of fork oil used is the key success of this project according him. Also the steering head was adjusted to suit the fork.
The process seems simple; dismantle, flush oil, refill oil, install bush and re-install. However it took almost whole afternoon for Ah Boy to fine tune it perfectly. Then he ask me to run a test ride. It is brand new stuff again! The cornering response is more accurate. Less vibration is sending to handle bar when running on bumpy surface. Ah Boy and me share the same opinion, “Do It Right for One Time and Forever”. The detail workmanship is worth while for 70km travelling.
Then we work on the rear suspension. The preload setting is adjustable, but the adjustment ring is stuck with sand and dust. Ah Boy use tool to slowly hammer the adjuster bit by bit. After adjust to maximum limit, the seat is harder and stable. This is the best way to do without pay a new suspension.
Before I left the workshop, the bill was inclusive GST (Goods Service Tax) this time. Feel happy with the bill (RM150) but not the tax.
