Any feedback on them, price? How do they compare to the Ohlins?

JJ, I spoke with this guy on Monday..I wanted to order the Wilbers Fork springs to match my ohlins rear...

Basically, he talked me out of the wilbers, and recommended a more "progressive" set of springs.

He's somewhat local NJ (in the area of Raceway Park)...

Give him a shout...he knows his shit..

Klaus set up the suspension and installed a Hyperpro on my X Challenge. It was night and day as far as the shock goes and the forks are much better but I think I am going to have Racetech do the forks on my new F800GS so that I can get some adjustability in them whereas Klaus just did the oil and spring thing on the X's. They are much better than stock but I am trying to get back to my gold standard of when I owned a DRZ400E that I had suspension work performed by W.E.R and it was the most compliant, plush ride I ever had. I should shoot myself for ever giving that bike up ;>)

Is Klaus the guy here in nj? Hyperpro were the springs he recommended I go with...

For the last two years, I've had great results with stock springs, but 15wt fluid in lieu of the 10wt...

Klaus owns EPM Performance in Manalapan, NJ. Klaus took out the Wirth springs I put in and replaced them with the Hyperpro. The Hyperpros are more progressively wound than the Worths. I don't know what weight oil he used in the forks though. I am going to purchase another Hyperpro shock for my F800 GS but the forks are going out to Racetech this time.

I got my rear Wilbers from Ted at the BeemerShop. Kind of expensive, but I like it. One thing I really like that Ohlins did not have at the time was the external adjuster/resvoir. I can let it off for a smooth ride for me and no gear or tighten it down for 2UP riding with some gear and still be fine.

Are you saying that they can revalve the X-challenge forks? I did not think that was an option.

Yes, TrailTricks revalved the forks and revalves the rear Ohlins.

Thanks for the link, now that I have the husky forks for the X I may want to swap out the rear shock as well

Hey Dirtsurfer,

How did you go about getting that sturdy looking bash plate? I've just emailed them in Germany, but do they have a USA dealer?

Thank you.

Stephan's English is good. He's a craftsman who makes and sells a few exceptional products - No USA dealer
