It's been a while since I introduced myself and Black Betty, my 1981 XJ650 Maxim. Thanks to many of the threads here, I was able to clean and rebuild the carbs and sort out all of the issues preventing her from running. Now, despite being cold blooded, she runs pretty darn well and can get me pretty much wherever I want to go. She doesn't need anything mechanical, although I'm sure she'd appreciate a top-end rebuild and fresh gaskets. However, the suspension is probably original and may have never been rebuilt (~22k miles). It feels a little squishy, but she's a "special cruiser", not a sport bike; maybe it's correct. I'm debating replacing the shocks with some 412s from Chacal and getting the performance front fork kit (~$500+) or living with suspension for now and cleaning up some of the patina in favor of new paint, etc. What do you guys think? Looks or suspension?
