    Looking for a suspension upgrade that wont break the bank

    So I'm picking up a 2014 FZ-09 and from riding one in the past a front suspension upgrade is going to be an absolute must but I really can't swing a grand for Ohlins cartridges. I'm a pretty aggressive rider and regularly go to the tail of the dragon. This is a 2 fold question. 1. Would changing springs and getting heavier fork oil be enough of an improvement for possible track use? 2. If not, is there a less expensive good cartridge kit that isn't going to force me into debt?

    Stoltec's spring and valve kit is not that expensive and it is a night and day improvement. When you're done with that you'll want to replace the shock, just sayin'.
