    It was 1600. Several hundred more than Hyperpro with hydraulic preload, which is a great shock I'm sure. The Tractive is an all in one unit and is very well built. Look at the dimensions of all of their components and compare them to others. For me it was worth the extra expense. They build the shocks Touratech sells. The shock I bought from Ted is 200 bucks more from Touratech.

    Tractive is what Touratech slaps their name on (and several extra $$$)!
    Talked with Ted and will likely go with the same shock but thinking on the -30mm version. Not sure I want to pay for the Tractive forks right off so will go with Hyper Pro -30mm fork kit (again, what Touratech again sells overpriced with their branding)

    Anymore updates on anyone who’s running the Andreani Fork cartridges?

    I've been running them since May. Makes a huge difference on and off road.

    How much travel did you measure on the fork?

    It's the around the same as stock 'S'...between 7.7 to 7.8 static sag with me not sitting in the bike.

    what changes do you feel compared to the stock suspension?
    In scenarios such as pits, sharp edges, etc. Overall harshness.
    I am thinking of switch from my 790R to 890S and install Andreani Fork cartridges and Andreani Ohlins shock. They should be interchangeable 790/890.

    Anyone running the Andreani Ohlins shock?)

    Harshness on sharp edged bumps greatly reduced. Well pleased with them as I can set my suspension up now for touring or off-road. Stock suspension is just not very good IMHO. I am running the HyperPro rear shock. Very good as well.

    I bought a custom sprung Tractive shock from Ted @ BeemerShop and so far it's been well worth the cost. Probably won't get the chance to really beat it up until the spring (pun not intended).

    How do you access the HS/LS clickers with the shock mounted? Looks like they are unreachable.

    It's a tight fit for sure, but no problem with the proper hex wrench (provided in the box)

    Hi, please can you read the spring's K value? It should be engraved on the head of the springs...

    I don't see nothing writen on the spring. But on the spring box, the code is 105/KT9E. I bought from Omnia Racing, Italia. I told them my weight whitout gear, 150 lbs.
