'Flashback' and 'loph917',
You're real enduro man ;-). I'm not and I didn't mention it, but I've changed my suspension with Hyperpro [rear and front].
Not that I was having problems whatsoever, but I had good experience with the Hyperpro fitted on my F800ST. So I had a good deal for installing Hyperpro in front [progressive springs] and rear the complete damping set with spring for 695,- euro [all included]. I did this when driven 20K km with the bike.
The funny thing was, that when I first drove away, I had the [pleasant] feeling I was 'SITTING IN THE BIKE'
So You are both right I think, when You mention the suspension, especially for offroad activities, it could be improved.
It was one of the few criticisms in the comparison test with the 800XC.
Must say that the bike doesn't plunge that much anymore ...
