    Thread revival!!!

    Hey Ken - how is this progressing? Im interested in the forks for an 03 adv as the rear end is reasonably good - unless this can also be improved substantially?
    Any update on feasibility as yet?

    We're currently testing fork cartridges with excellent results. The shock is still in development. We're looking at several unique production methods and materials to keep weight and cost down...

    Ken- count me in for a rear shock. The shock on the SE is abysmal. You know that as well as I. With your tank and the Squadron headlight I have on there, the shock is the only remaining weakness. It sucks. I've had mine rebuilt 6 times now. I fucking hate it. It basically stops functioning after about 30 minutes of hard use.:deal

    I 'll be in for the rear shock for sure. I hate it. For the front maybe but wait for the price and i'm surely not running my SE hard like you. I mostly looking for traction and high speed compression for high speed on gravel and bumpy trail. :eek1

    You might not have to. We're currently building 10 Adventure sets, and 10 SER sets for those that wish to jump on board.

    The Adventure sets will include modified Öhlins TTx22 front cartridges with all the needed hardware,springs and a new brake line. It will also include all the needed parts to increase the rear suspension travel to 277mm, keeping the bike truly balanced. To accomplish this increase in travel without compromising the quality of suspension, the rear kit includes a new longer shock housing among it's parts.

    The SER kit's include a similar front Öhlins TTx22 cartridge, as well as the matching Öhlins TTx44 rear shock that's been heavily modified to work with the Super Enduro.



    Thank's all for now... back to the grind!
