GDR also price matches if you can find a better deal
All of the guys at GDR are great, I have known and rode with them for years. I bought an 09 FE450 in March of 09 from GDR and have loved it! They are excellent suspension tuners on any brand, but they specialize in WP. With my weight (230) I have 4.8s in the front forks and an 8.0 rear spring.

Here are some photos and a video of my 'Berg:
