SUSPENSION TECH UP

SUSPENSION TECH UP

The Processes of K-Tech Suspension Treatment   Story and pictures by Wahid Ooi Abdullah   If you thought being a motorcycle journalist is only about riding almost every single bike in the market, it’s only a blip about what we do.

As we crossed the bridge over Sungai Perak, Nurul tapped my shoulder and pointed ahead. I glanced to the left, looked at the river (which I’ve seen a million times) and gave a thumb’s up. She tapped my shoulder again, more authoritatively this time. I was puzzled as there weren’t any interesting sights [...]

Comfortable, light, had a relatively cool interior, allows good vision and was especially stable at high speeds. As with any product, there were a small number of niggles for HJC [...]

A slight pressure on the faceshield was it - no wobble, no shimmy, no blowing [...]
