Gt thunder sucks??Thats pretty harsh since they sponsered quite a few xc riders with Yamaha bikes that finished very well in gncc.My guess is you were setup with the wrong link,linkage or shock for what your doing.Put the houser link and gt thunder link together there almost identical.My travel is silky super smooth with a properly setup rear suspension(Custom dual rate axis,gt thunder linkage,stock swingarm and fresh bearings).In fact ars/fx xc link was the most significantly different design if you put the elka,houser,gt and ars/fx next to each other,and I did and run all 4 with various setups.
