I have a new to me 2009 R1200GS, with the stock Showa suspension. Unfortunately I am too heavy at 250lbs without gear for the springs so I am going to upgrade to aftermarket stuff. The bike has 19,000 miles on it so the stock stuff is likely pretty clapped out anyway. While the bike does have factory ESA, I don't really think it is necessary for me. My loads won't vary much, and I don't mind adjusting preload manually (with a hydraulic adjuster) occasionally. I also enjoy fiddling with damping clickers. Due to all the recommendations I have read here, I called Ted Porter at the Beemer Shop and we discussed my needs at length. I was surprised to hear him recommend the TFX Suspension (http://www.tfxsuspension.com) over the Wilbers which I had thought I would end up with. Ted feels the TFX is a step up from the Wilbers for anyone who intends to ride Forest Service roads and rough paved roads (which is my favorite stuff). He said the HPA has almost twice the range of other brands at about 15mm, and the overall design and construction is stouter than the Wilbers. When I search on this site for the TFX stuff I don't find much. Wondering why. What I did find was overwhelmingly positive. The TFX stuff is made in Holland / Netherlands where a lot of top end suspension seems to come from these days. Opinions before I commit to this?
