Cheers for the reply do you mind if I ask the cost of your upgrade?
Retail, Shock + Fork Cartridges & Springs approx AU$2600+Labor+Sundries $300, call it 3 large, but as I figure whats the point of having a $16000 bike if I can only use it to 70% of my capability. (don't get me wrong, I'm no Toby not even close, but I can ride and like going fast over rough stuff)
As I said before, for 90% of general Adv riders OE is quite capable, I did 13000k on the OE but now I personally need more.
And from what others have said and reports I have read, there are many suspension shops out there that can also do a great job with different brand set up's, ultimately its up to what you feel is best for you and your budget.
I'm having mine all fitted tomorrow, than a big 2 day 80% dirt ride on the weekend, time will tell
