I think that you're a Limey to them, you're a Pom to the other colonies!

The rear shock is just over $1K And there is no pricing quite yet on the front end. They are working on those numbers.

I'll be very interested in the forks. They come first with me as the OEM shock spring is OK for my riding weight.

The SPRING on the OEM shock may be ok, but the shock itself leaves MUCH to be desired. The Tenere forks aren't that bad from the factory. With a proper set of springs they are good, with a ~$650 revalve (including springs/labor) they are GREAT.

The rear shock, on the other hand really needs to be swapped to get good performance. There are some options out there. Hopefully this summer there will be a new, more affordable option.

Tabasco's is a high end unit and will probably be over $2000.

YACUGAR are a Dutch company who formed from the technicians that were WP (White Power Suspension) before KTM bought WP and moved the operation to Austria.

see: http://www.yacugar.com/

There is a US distributor,
a basic Yacugar with rebound damping and manual preload is around $800 US

Dan Kyle (in the vendor forum) sells Ohlins shocks for 24% off the US list price, resprings them for your weight and ships worldwide. By my math that puts the YA 013 shock at around $940.

Yeah, my issue is more with the valving in front at expessway speeds. The front starts showing limitations at close to triple-digit speed on the slab. I will eventually get to the shock as well.
