See...... for $1200 you get the front end you want on your terms for less than a suspension upgrade even when you factor in the forks. Plus Emig will allow you to bolt all the OEM stuff straight up.
I have Emig's full kit on my bike and they rock. Even after five years when the dampener was a bit notchy (some bloke possibly worked them a bit hard), they offered to fix it for free when I asked to purchase a rebuild kit.
I can't complain, only praise them and I am a miserable complaining bastard who only wanted a rebuild kit expecting nothing.....
