Cool for ‘cats

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - What’s The Problem? - Keith In­gle,

So, back on a bike af­ter a cou­ple of years’ ab­sence. Any tips for com­mon mod­i­fi­ca­tions or im­prove­ments for Yamaha Thun­der­cats?

Saul Tow­ers says: The Thun­der­cat is a won­der­ful sports-tourer and worth en­joy­ing for what it is. That said the rear shock isn’t all that so I’d rec­om­mend a Nitron, or sim­i­lar, in there. The forks are fully ad­justable and if you can’t find a set­ting you like in there then of course there is the op­tion of revalv­ing and new springs from some­one like MCT. How­ever go too sporty and you’ll lose the ap­peal­ing soft, com­fort­able char­ac­ter of the bike.
