Talking Ohlins rear shock and Elka front valve job

Hey Folks,

I know I posted the benefits and awesomeness of upgrading the RC51 suspension, but every time I ride, I can't believe the responsiveness of the bike!

I had the stock set-up (No adjustment noted even when set to maximum either way) with a 200 tire in 2013. Now that I have the Ohlins rear shock and Elka valve job, my confidence level has risen 10 fold since the bike gives excellent feedback and ultimate control overall.

Again, as I have mentioned before, change that garbage shock!

Cost is pretty large, but worth it.

Cheers!

I'm glad you went with the suspension mods...I've chased power on other bikes and in all honesty suspension performance is the smarter choice. Enjoy those roads apparently you're close to Calabogie my good buddy is from Ottawa and his wife from the Calabogie area.
