Installing Bitubo drop in fork system into 1299 standard

Some imput please. I have a 2015 1299 panigale. What are your thoughts if I dropped a adjustable bitubo adjustable fork drop in suspension into my standard 1299 panigale. Is it worth it or should I keep it the way it is. i track my bike about 10 to 12 times a year. The rest is street riding. However I am a stickler for performance upgrades just like I am on my 2 other harleys , my BMW S1000R and my BMW S1000RR.

Make sure you get them from a local specialist so that you get the correct set up ! And on going service. If you are doing 12 track days you will benefit. The rear OEM shock is rubbish , that will be the best upgrade . If you havent yet purchased, find a recommended suspension specialist and buy from them .

do it! with proper suspension, you will save money on tires (and prevented crashes) in the long run.

sounds reasonable, right?

i had the bitubo rear shock and liked it, but switched to ÷hlins F&R for serviceability (they are close to me)...

Would you recommend the Ohlins or Bitubo for the front? And which brand would you recommend for the rear that wont break the bank?

Do you think the rear should be changed before II go with the rear before doing the front?

the marzocchis are not too shabby...

on a budget, i'd go shock first.

what i recommend cost wise is using a stock S shock and having ÷hlins install manual clickers.... that can be had for ~$400 + $150 if you're lucky

Which model ohlins is used on the stock S? And if you had to recommend a better ohlins rear shock which would you recommend? And would they already have manual clickers?
