Anyone have recent experience?
I've got them on my R100s/5. I like them pretty well. I think for the money, they're great, but I have Ikon's on another bike, and I like them better. The Yss's ride pretty hard, and I weigh just under 200#. If I were 160, I don't think I'd like them very much!
Starting at post #74, there is a little information here - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=741179&page=5
How are they different? The Koni's seem to work best dialled at 3, and the YSS don't have a choice there, but the local bloke from YSS tells me they simulate the Koni at 3.
I do not know much about all that. Something about emulsion... ? You'd have to ask Klaus at http://epmperf.com/aboutus.htm, or Tom Cutter.
I have two different set on mines, Bravo and E-302.
The gas type E-302 is notably better than the Bravo in turn of handling, reflecting from the price.
Bravo looks very similar to OE with the adjustment arm.
The only issue I had was the length. Initally, I got a set of E-302 for my 80' RT which is 330 mm compare to stock should be 340mm.
I took the bike for a 5 days 2300 miles trip with the new shocks. The rear tries got almost wore out due to the weight shifting to the back.
I weight 140 lbs, and no top case.
After the trip, I ordered another set of Bravo to replace it and put the E-302 on my /7.
They didn't have the 340mm in stock and I was told the 350mm will fit. Yes, 350mm fits and does make the bike rides different, I don't know better or not.
With 350mm, my short legs got do more work when bike is not running.
They are good shocks for the money
I bought a set of the Bravo model and put them on my R100RS.
They have certainly highlighted that the Koni's were in need of a rebuild.
There are 5 options for the spring. I started at the middle one, but as it felt a little stiff I reduced it to the second softest. Just right.
Next weekend I have a decent ride over a variety of roads from highway to twisty mountains, so I guess I'll see how they really go then.
