Hello All.
Got myself a 5000 miles 2015 PCX for the back of my motorhome garage , fits perfect, had new Michelins fitted and love the little beauty , apart from one thing , the rear suspension does not match up to the rest of the scoot , I ride two up and wish to get something better , don't want to make any other changes am happy with the power for tootling around , anybody can advise an upgrade will appreciate it. Had a search on here but nothing came up.Thanks. Pete

At a minimum, keep the tire pressure up. For two up, I believe the rear should be at 36 psi. Front is always 29 psi.

Aftermarket shocks are a possibility - someone will chime in on their merits. I've just gotten used to using the maneuverability to go around as many road imperfections as I can. If I can't, I come up a bit off the seat, hopefully soon enough to warn the Admiral.

A good aftershock that has a good preload for riding two people and is reliable and cheap is the YSS Z-series shock. Two years on mine hauling around my 250lbs, and they still work great. About 140 shipped.....
