RH 50cc seat and suspension mod

Post by brothergc »

I like my RH 50 fast enough for me but the shocks and the seat leave Me wanting / Seat is just too thin , no cushion . Are their any upgrades available ?
Tried google and nothing .
The shocks are ok at best defiantly looking into upgrading them

I came across this https://www.scooterworks.com/blog/2014/ ... ugh-house/
wow pretty cool and their is a parts list on that page so i am wondering and wanting feedback as to if these will work ? anyone replaced the front shocks ?
I am a car mechanic to I am pretty good with a wrench but never worked on a scooter
anyway here is my list of parts I am considering feedback appreciated

https://www.scooterworks.com/NCY-Front- ... rk&catId=1
will these work ?
and for the rear
https://www.scooterworks.com/NCY-Low-Do ... 93&catId=1

And later in the spring looking at this

The Low Profile seat is even thinner than stock. So if its not soft enough for you dont even think about the low profile one.

ok well the original seat is only at best 1/2 inch in padding and I am being generous here probably it is less then that so how much worse can it be ? do You own this seat ? Just wondering :)
I emailed scooter works and lets see what they say

Are you sure yours doesn't have the low profile seat already? The stock one is pretty soft imo

The bucket is the same. The seat is thinner than stock hence the low profile.
