I am still in Afghaistan for another few weeks and the Soltec site is blocked for some reason at work. I need to get to the USO and jump on their wifi to be able to look at prices for what the suspension and ecu is going to cost. Hopefully I can get everything from what I save on the Triumph (2k) , at least thats the plan.Yep, I'm going with Stoltec, flash, middle Penske (double clicker) and the top fork option.
If you can do the work yourself (changing the shock, fork springs and fork oil), you can get the suspension in shape with the emulsion shock- plus the ECU flash for the fueling issue- for under $1000. If you go for a higher-spec shock the price goes up from there. I would likely have been happy with the basic Penske shock but since I will be keeping the bike for a long time, and I'll be taking it to the track, it was worth a bit extra to go with the mid-level shock with adjustable low-speed compression and rebound damping.
Make a pot of coffee, and type "Suspension" in the search box, and read all of the stuff that has been posted about suspension on here. Way to go on the purchase.Will be purchasing a new bike in a few weeks and I narrowed it down to the Street R or FZ-09. I know from reading reviews the biggest draw back to the FZ is the suspension. What options are there for a 210 lb rider?
