    Yakuza Ojiki

    I just purchased a used 2006 yakuza ojiki. gorgeous bike with a few blemishes on it, and i got a steal. my question is is there anything that blaringly needs to be upgraded on this bike, i have limited expertise and i'm just starting to try my hand at freeride and downhill.
    here are the stock specs:

    Probably the fork and rear shox.
    That is what I would do right off the bat.

    yeah ditch the rear shock and the fork too.
    you probably wont need to change those parts until you reach a certain level of riding. when you feel them slow you down then you might want to change the parts
    also a better pair of brakes would be nice. something like avid codes or for a cheaper price hayes stroker trails
    as for fork and shocks
    fork: marzocchi 66 or rockshox totem if you want a big fork but if you want a lighter a bit smaller fork a rockshox lyric, marzocchi 55, fox shox 36 van, float, or talas
    rear shock: fox shox dhx 5.0, marzocchi roco wc or roco tst r, rockshox vivid
    you can buy all these parts on ebay for much cheaper brand new or used
