Thanks, I've just PM'd you.
We've got you covered on both ends. Give us a call at (512) 772-4379 and we can get you taken care of.
I'm in contact with Alex Martens, think he's a colleague of yours?
Just got stretched xplor pro installed, feels like a full grown heavy enduro with pp tall seat
95cm seat height, too slippery to test drive without spikes - next summer shows if I need to install extra wheels on sides that my daughter tossed away last summer
How much did you pay for the whole thing? Waiting for those photos as well
Hyperpro have a rear shock for sale for ~800$, waiting for someone to try this in combination with the front Hyperpro spring kit.
Something nice and red for the 790 to enjoy xmas time..
Yes @IanC , he's the main man here at Konflict.
Needs more baubles... Some cute, pron fairies and tinsel... Slurp!
I had the pleasure of spending a day in the shop at Suspension 101 with George while he got my R set up. In addition to the top shelf tuning, he managed to squeak another 15mm of travel out of it front and back for a total of 255mm. I was really impressed with the attention paid to the small details (chamfering piston ports, lots of time spent on the lathe making custom bits, etc).
Main complaints of the stock suspension:
1) The forks felt really rough over small bumps and chop (despite me being far out of the spec'd weight range). The bottoming resistance was great but the initial hit was harsh and it felt like it was deflecting a lot.
2) The bike felt unbalanced. The forks seemed far firmer than the shock (which felt mushy, wallowy, and it dipped way too deep into the stroke far too often).
After the suspension work, the forks are plusher than stock and have more bottoming resistance. I can pound through rougher terrain faster and feel like I'm more in control than before. The bike tracks wonderfully now. Out on the desert 2 track near Ocotillo Wells and Glamis Dunes, the bike absolutely ate up the whoops and G-outs. The back end stays much higher in the stroke and feels far more planted than it did previously. The set-up is a great blend of plush and firm (which seems like they are mutually exclusive concepts but apparently they don't need to be!).
Well done @Torque
Jealousy factor = 11
No need to be jealous, just get ahold of @Torque !
It was such an incredible experience working with George on the 790 suspension. My assessment of the stock suspension was pretty much the same as yours, and it appears that you find his improvements as amazing as I have. One of these days I'll have to get out there and visit him in person. Right now I'm waiting for a set of intake valves to show up, but then I'm heading over to Moab to test out the newest shock mod.
I have! Just not in the budget right now, especially with my lack of time in the saddle. If I still lived out there, it’d be a no-brainer.
Ha! Too funny, I was just talking to George about adding an additional reservoir to the shock to bump the very small oil volume up to an acceptable level. Looks like you beat me to the implementation stage!
Nice! This is why I'm lurking in the shadows waiting for the dust to clear, to see what you and @Torque end up coming up with.
AdvRonski does not sit on his hands. He also has a bit of time. If he was in this business I think I might be his employee.
We are going to do something similar with a twist but have to finish current projects first.
Thanks for the props Camel ADV. I think we need to work together more.
Any chance of a DIY kit for those of us who are brave enough to crack stuff open ourselves, would be awesome...? I notice the same shortcomings of course, harsh on chop, bottoms to easy and no adjustment can solve both issues at once.
I think there are too many mods to do a DYI unless you have a machine shop and even then the time relating the details would make it not cost effective.
