O.k I want honest opinions how much does a 240 mod degrade ride(comfort). I think they make the X look like she should have been in the first place but I also like my 300 mile rides. Yes I did search and found nothing pertinent. Don't roast the rider. My thoughts are it might work as long as you upgrade maybe to progressive 440's and new fork springs, but it's easy to say on paper.

It is going to be a stiffer/harsh ride due to the low profile rubber that has to go on. Less sidewall=less flex to absorb the bumps, just like in cars. It won't matter what kind of shocks you put on,it is going to change the ride quality. Now it won't be as bad as a hard-tail, but it won't be your same X anymore either. No one can say how it will affect YOU and your ride, it is something that you will have to see for yourself. 8)
