Thread revival!!!

Hey Ken - how is this progressing? Im interested in the forks for an 03 adv as the rear end is reasonably good - unless this can also be improved substantially?
Any update on feasibility as yet?

We're currently testing fork cartridges with excellent results. The shock is still in development. We're looking at several unique production methods and materials to keep weight and cost down...

Ken- count me in for a rear shock. The shock on the SE is abysmal. You know that as well as I. With your tank and the Squadron headlight I have on there, the shock is the only remaining weakness. It sucks. I've had mine rebuilt 6 times now. I fucking hate it. It basically stops functioning after about 30 minutes of hard use.

I'm not good enough to notice the front to much....but the rear....

I hope its going to be within my budget......Ken?
