HIGHLY recommend KFG!
Yeah, they were great! Seemed trustworthy and were willing to take the time to show me what they were doing and why. They didn't try to sell me on the latest greatest either.

I just can't justify a race set up costing thousands, so I'll work with what I have to get it close enough for what I'm doing. A new spring and maybe some front fork internals if I need it.

They said the problem with DES is that although there are 30 settings you can choose from the difference between each setting is pretty small. So, it's real important to get the ride height correct, so that you can make changes within the limits of the DES. Makes sense to me.
Sounds like that makes sense to me... Get the initial setup done and then fine tune with the DES. When are you gonna start getting the suspension setup done? I'm out of town for two months so I'd be interested in what goes on during the setup.

Probably not until spring time when I can ride a more frequently. I'll let you know, if you want to meet up.

Did KFG buy out GP Suspension?

Barry Wressell was at the Seattle Motorcycle Show and had a Panigale at his booth with the Penske suspension setup. Thread here:

If you live in the Pacific Northwest and have a motorcycle, I would highly recommend Barry for your suspension needs.

I don't know the particulars, but they had advertising everywhere for GP suspension.

Agree, they did a great job. I'm going back soon to re-spring the front and rear.

Hey Bronch did you get your suspension done yet? I first met Barry back in the 90's. Good guy, he's come a long way. He's also the Pirelli rep.
