From what I've read, these are under sprung rather than over sprung. The fork springs measured .62 while the Race-Tech site recommends .80 springs for my weight. (165 or so). I think the...

Yep, that's the piece. :thumb If my suspension guy gets good results with my shocks, I want him to post in Vendors. I'm pretty sure he could get a ton of shock work just with V7s.

1. Its Italian.
2. Service is simple, you can do it yourself.
3. I've had mine to 100, but that isn't what this bike is about.
4. Not as fast as a Versys, but faster than a KLR.
5. Yes.

That's pretty good for quantifying it. The stock pipes are louder than I expected and louder than most stock bikes. A lot louder would probably be louder than I would want. Thanks. :thumb

The crank is 180, but the firing is 360 due to the layout. The idea is the pistons(and the mass associated with them) moving in the opposite direction cancel each other out as far as vibration goes.
