If I go with the Hyperpro I'm considering going with the 1/2-inch lower ride height version - has anyone here done that? I'm not a fan of the purple spring on the Hyperpro, but the former KLR owner in me balks at the notion of paying an additional $10 for a black spring.
Never ridden a bike with an ohlins but I'm very happy with my hyperpro. Also worth noting the number of posts on here about having ohlins shocks reworked.
Life is not a rehearsal!
