Stock HS forks are horrendous in my opinion. I can't feel them until they're almost bottoming out. You're looking at $500-1100 to upgrade HS forks for some decent to Ohlins or better. The SP Ohlins forks are easily 3 inches higher than the HS, so you would be just making a HS into a HM with bags and a few other deltas. I'm going full Mupo front and rear like RSL did. I expect this will be better than SP suspension without the putting me on my toes and I have a 33 inch inseam. Forget the seat height on the HM, I'm just not interested. I do drag my toes on the HS, so that's the next thing I need to figure out or live with. Ceramic toe slides help (simply last much longer than plastic ones).

Good luck...

Here's my dilemma. I have the SP already. The SP uses a special ultra-lightweight aluminum fork (yes, aluminum stanchions), that is awesomely race tuned. It doesn't hold up in the long run though. The stanchions are showing some wear, and got a few nicks from flying rocks. I think the HS fork with a cartridge is actually a better option. Or the 939 SP Ohlins is probably pretty sweet.

The SP does have cool forks but the height...

I've seen HS forks on ebay. You might need to machine the left lower bracket depending. This means removing the stanchion tube. The grub screws can be a problem, or so I've heard and read. Good luck...

Okay... I can't really believe I'm saying this. I am ready to ship out a couple kits soon. I went through everyone that PM'd me and posted in the thread(s), and put this list together in the best chronological order to my knowledge.

If you could please post if you're still interested so I know what the current list looks like, it would be helpful. Then I will figure out shipping/specifics with each person.

This forum is odd in that it never notifies you of a PM, so I will have to simply give it a few days and move onto the next person if there are crickets. Unless someone has a better idea, I'm open to suggestions.

I had to check to make sure I didn't have any when I read that. There is an option in the User CP to get email notifications for new PMs.

I'm still in.
