Just finished fitting them tonight, then took her for a spin about 50 k's in the dark over a well known road. The difference is remarkable, plush and controlled, no doubt about that ! Can't wait to load the bike up fully and see how it all feels. The bike rides 20 mm higher with just me on board and no preload dialed up, so I think that will make a big difference to cornering clearance with my SM footpeg reloactors fitted. A further report will follow, but I can recommend the upgrade already.

Indeed !! .... Don't trust the factory settings on rebound dials !!
Play with them in the knowing as you increase rebound resistance, so does the compression damping gets stiffer incrementally.

After some fine tuning your smiles are going to be LARGER !!

Enjoy the ride ;)

Weather was crap here in Tassie today, and I was busy with domestic type mandane thingies, I think they are called chores, at least that's what they felt like to me. So no time really for more testing / tuning yet, but I have a real dilemma - where is the best place to put the Wilbers stickers without them looking out of place or tacky on a K12 ? I put 1 rectangular 1 on the side case behind the latch on the RH side, that looks neat, but where on earth can I place one at the front ?? Man I'm stressin' 'bout this ! Help please. Oh, yeah, I'm not really a 'sticker' person, but I've made an exception this time.

hmmm, pretty sure mine are still sitting in the box. Most of my stickers go inside the topcase! :eek:
Although they are nearly all Snowy Ride ones.

Ain't no nosey mechanic gunna be lookin' under my seat let me tell ya ! Already placed an oval sticker inside the top case lid, I think that'll be it, don't want to turn her into a billboard. Went out in the rain today, needed to have a ride, not too much bravado though, very slippery, 'specially the shiny stuff.

Being the humanitarian type individual that I am I will be gld to help you out of your quandry.

Box up the shocks AND the stickers and send them to me. I will manage the stickers for you!

I will send you my ORIGINAL BMW shocks by return post. Original means the front shock is a leaker and the springs are just about as flat as they can get :(

Congrats on your new Wilburs!
