Give Ted Porter a call at his Beamershop. He will give the selectomatic wheel on his desk a spin and let you know what brand would be a good choice for you, your 1 and 2 up load and your riding style. They are pretty much all custom ordered, assembled and set up per those specs.

I just got an upgraded rear TFX from him and am very happy with it. Most are pretty close on cost for like and both the Yucagar and the TFX have a longer rebuild interval than the Ohlin and I am not sure about the Wilber's

BeemerShop Motorcycle Suspension Center

Good luck.
