So did you swap to a wilburs for the ride quality? Esa failure is something i thought about but then again, i dont think its failure is going to leave you stranded.

Personally, i love it. Only 700 miles on the bike but i switch modes depending on the ride and if the wifey is along. I had full ohlins on the tuono and had it setup for me....once u are used to good suspension, its hard to go back. I find the stock setup very good. Maybe my tune will change once i load up for a trip, but so far, i wouldnt go back to standard manual suspension.

Salty, around 3200 for the pair.
