GP Moto and Riders Edge Suspension , more pics of suspension porn to follow.
Similar story here, mate! Just with James at Super Plush instead...









Jacked up 35mm, re-valved, stiffer springs and custom pre-load adjustment.

... And so it begins!

I'd love to, fella. But - to be honest - I didn't even know what you were talking about until I looked a little closer.

That's actually just a bit a duct tape covering the fins on the OEM tank protector to keep things nice while the bike's being pulled apart. I'll be whacking in a set of Hepco & Beckers for protection, but now that you mention it, in the absence of hulking great steel bars, a little bit of carbon fiber over that area could prove useful in street rider spills...

Did you have to change your side/centerstand?

Not so far...

I live in NOLA, but bought the bike from Scuderia West in SF. In a way, this worked out very nicely because SPS has a tremendous reputation for their work with 9x0s and happen to be right next door to Scuderia, so it made sense to do the R&R remotely. I'm assuming that they'd know if the stands needed changing. And even if they didn't, they'd figure it out when 500lbs of Austrian steel toppled over on them!

Judging from the feedback and photos, jacking it up from 210 to 245mm doesn't present an issue in this area. Going balls-out to 265mm possibly would have. Either way, I'll be sure to let you know if Mark (Scuderia Service Manager) gets hospitalized by a falling Katoom. Or if I embarrass myself during the first ride.


Cheers!



Michael

Mounted a CJ rear plate and Some Rotopax cans. Next on the list a Pelican 1400 to mounts to the top can via a homemade mounting assembly. Rough stack to give a visual. Not sure I like how high the stack will be when carrying all three. I probably don't really need the case for longer trips. The cans will serve as a good point which to strap a medium Wolfman up to.

You'll LOVE the clutch. By far the best investment in all of my bikes. Especially the 990.

Rode it 834 miles (275 of it were yesterday) from Pensacola Fl where we bought it, to exit 95 off 95 in North Carolina. This bike is AWESOME!

You could mount the rotopax's to the pannier racks and have your soft bags hang on the outside of them as an alternative.....weight would be carried lower when the jugs are full. Then mount the Pelican to the rear plate and you could use the Wolfman over the Pelican when required........just a suggestion. I am pondering similar configurations as well, so my creative juices are flowing!

That makes a lot of sense, especially because the bags he has on there don't stick out that far. It would end up looking a lot less awkward.

Not sure which pannier frames you've got there, but they look like the KTM 18mm jobs. If so, one of these might be of interest:



Easy on/off platform that can accommodate up to 2 x 15L bags or one or two 1-gallon RotopaX in place of either or both bags (i.e. up to 30 liters of storage or 4 gallons of fluids per platform).

Just trying to be helpful, so hopefully, you don't think I'm spamming!
