He already hinted at a group buy - - I will post up when I get the rest of the details on the kit specifics.
Yup that's it

That's my favorite band. I just saw them play in Seattle on thr 13th.

Anyways back to suspension

Hopefully they come up with something for the rear shock on the models with ESA. I don't want to get left out lol.

it's german and there's no google translate for videos that i'm aware of, but they are talking about a new öhlins cartridge for the 800cc adventure bikes coming in the near future. this was taken from the intermot 2012 early october. rebound and compression adjustable as is preload (if that's what federvorspannung means ).

i sent an email to one of the german distributors, maybe they have some more information. anyway, in the video they are talking about having to remove the cartridge for adjusting rebound & compression, ist that normal (i know nothing about this stuff).

some more things they are saying: rebound one side, compression the other (independent). and there's some hydraulic system (hydro-stop) to prevent bottoming-out.

I tried to watch it. Couldn't understand a damn thing they were saying. I wish I knew German.

wouldn't it be really cruel if this set up was for the new WP legs that are on the 2013's?

That's not how I understood it. I think they meant for major setup work you can take it out and adjust compression and rebound independently - since one leg is for compression and the other for rebound.

The availability for '13 WP forks is one of the questions I added to the list he is working on.

I'm waiting till I have all the details, pricing, and availability dates, etc before I post the news.

Thanks let me know when they get back to you. That will be the first major mod I do to my F8.
