You have to swap more than the forks to get it to work.

Donít get me wrong, love my S and bought it specifically for the eSuspension, but in all reality I didnít know enough about suspensions then, buy now is a different story. Now that I know, I donít need the eSusp. It makes it easy to adjust compression and dampening, and you donít have to guess what your last setting was. What you may want to adjust is the preload, which is still manual on the eSusp.

Go buy a motool and a notebook to record your last settings. In the end you may want a stable softer setup and a firm but stable setup. Then watch the Dave Moss video on how and why you need a motool. TBH you need it even if you have the eSusp.

When you learn enough you may want to buy a new rear shock that uses a socket to adjust the preload instead of retrofitting eSusp.

Of course, the eSusp does a little more like stiffen on accel.

Funny you say that.. Dave Moss has already adjusted my suspension while he was in the area. The bike rides great, especially with the bumpy roads around here. But I couldnít help but wonder if anyone had actually gone through with the swap, even from the 1199/1299 days.

Buy the slacker sag tool and first record your current settings. Then set the sag to a stiffer set up and then a softer setup. When you feel the difference you will begin to understand whatís going on.

Must admit, I think the slacker is a great tool to have in the arsenal. Especially
from the point of view of being able to do it all with one person, as long as
you have decent bike stands.
