Ktmtwins R spec suspension kit

Has anyone purchased this "55mm" raising kit?

http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-950-990-...suspension-kit

I'm wondering how it is, as I see the price drop on their website. I'm picking up an 06 950 and was wondering if this would bring it up to the '03 S spec suspension height? If it sucks, I'll probably just go with Superplush this winter.

Plenty of threads about this kit.

I didn't use it because the springs are stock "R" as well as the stock valving. So, I would need to change those. If I'm going to change those, might as well send it off to the "real" guys.

So I did. The money hurt, but the results are great.

That's the conclusion I drew after giving it some thought.

Tempting, though.
