I bought Wilburs at Ted Porter’s suggestion and he set them up. Here is my experience:
1. Higher ride height making centerstand use easier (even with EHCS).
2. Much stiffer ride, particularly in the front.
1. Much stiffer ride, particularly in the front.
Neither here no there:
1. I noticed no real difference in handling other than that due to the higher ride height. I no longer drag the centerstand nearly as often riding two up, but otherwise I saw no difference in handling.
Knowing what I know now, I would have simply replaced the rear spring to get better ride height and kept the less harsh ride of the stock suspension. The LT is almost uncomfortably firm now riding solo.
