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.
