Yes sir.

I 'll be in for the rear shock for sure. I hate it. For the front maybe but wait for the price and i'm surely not running my SE hard like you. I mostly looking for traction and high speed compression for high speed on gravel and bumpy trail.

You might not have to. We're currently building 10 Adventure sets, and 10 SER sets for those that wish to jump on board.

The Adventure sets will include modified Öhlins TTx22 front cartridges with all the needed hardware,springs and a new brake line. It will also include all the needed parts to increase the rear suspension travel to 277mm, keeping the bike truly balanced. To accomplish this increase in travel without compromising the quality of suspension, the rear kit includes a new longer shock housing among it's parts.

The SER kit's include a similar front Öhlins TTx22 cartridge, as well as the matching Öhlins TTx44 rear shock that's been heavily modified to work with the Super Enduro.



Thank's all for now... back to the grind!

Hey there, just got in on this show of hands thing. The only price I have seen so far on these things is "crazy" Crazy prices dont necessarily translate to crazy good, do they?

I think the price will be long forgotten once the results are felt.

Maybe in for a fork kit

I have a 950SE and had trailtricks redo the rear shock with a progressive spring and whatever he did to the valving. I'm satisfied with the rear shock as it is now as I was looking for more compliance over rocks. I was going to have him do the front forks but he moved back to South America

I'm definitely not satisfied with the forks as they are now and will be looking to have them redone in the near future. They are way to harsh over the babyhead rocks of Baja. I don't pound whoops or get big air and I don't race, and if I'm smart I won't start racing. I will probably use my SE in the future mostly for speedy Baja and Rocky Mountain trail exploration.

I've been waiting to chime in here until I see the price for the fork kit but thought I'd check in to see if you have an approximate (even close to ballpark) price yet and whether you think I'd be best served with one of these kits or with something else.

We'll only be selling these as a complete kit - both front and rear together. To do otherwise would give you an unbalanced bike and work against what we're trying to accomplish.
