Post Best parts? Front fork/suspension refresh - 2k M750

I've seen some great posts on here about 900ie front end rebuild/refresh but never quite sure if that relates directly to carb'd M750 models 2000 and under - mine is 2k M750 [so apologies in advance if this is a repeat].

I need to replace my steering head bearings, and my rear shock [oem Sachs] is squeaky as hell [I'm too heavy] so thinking a broader refresh is in order [just rolled over 20k].

Considering the cheaper non remote reservoir Ohlins out back [Ohlins model S46DR1] - appreciate input/feedback from anyone with experience using this part or others, trying to get quality without breaking the bank].

Also wondering what people recommend in terms of front fork rebuild. Thinking Race Tech? [RACE TECH - FORK SPRINGS Item #: FRSP S3627090] - again thanks for any input/recommendations.

FTR I will not be doing this work myself but taking it to a local shop that is very reliable but not Duc-specific so I will likely need to source my own parts [not a bad thing!]. Recommendations on all key replaceable front fork/suspension components are greatly appreciated [everything I'll likely need to buy].

TY in advance.

Matt

You can't go wrong with Racetech or Ohlins. Make sure you research the correct rate spring on their website before ordering. I don't have good input on what weight fork oil is best for those forks, maybe do a search here. I usually try ATF which is about 10 w and cheap, then go up or down from there.

All Balls is as good as anybody for the steering head bearings.

Hey thanks for that. At least one of the companies that sells the Ohlins unit will actually set it up for your bike/weight, so I'll likely defer to that [plus they are based in Italy]. I'll have to go to Racetech to research. Good stuff.
