New Front Fork Cartridge Options

Curious as to who has tried any of the multiple fork cartridge options that are out now for the Hyperstrada at this time. Appears there are some good options available such as Mupo, Traxxion, Matris and of course the Andreani kit.
I have a 2015 Strada and feel that the front forks are the first thing I need to fix but would like to hear about any experience with some of the above options. Mainly interested in small to medium bump compliance as the roads here are just horrid.
Any reviews good or bad?
I did read the suspension thread and saw the RSL/Mupo review and some early Andreani stuff but anyone try the Traxxion or Matris options?

I've heard great feedback about Andreani and Mupo both. You probably can't go wrong with either one.

All are huge improvement. Andreani is affordable and great for normal street/ adventure use. Mupo are custom sprung to rider. Can't comment on other brands but just know the stock tubes are crap.

Andreani are also custom spring to rider weight.

I would say that its hard to knock the pricing for the Andreani units as Ducati of Omaha wants 3x the price for the Mupo kit.
Quick look current pricing from "reputable" dealers
Andreani @ 600
Matris @ 750
Traxxion @ 1100
Mupo @ 1500
@ RSL, I hear you on the advice of doing the front and rear and will do that if I find a deal on a shock. Perhaps you want to sell me your front and rear setup?
The forks literally feel like the first third of this fork is not even working. I am a front end rider and they bug me to the point that I don't even notice the rear. In fact, if I get the forks working well I will solid mount the bars and eliminate the dampers to get more of the feel that my 996S has.
What spring rates have you guys settled on for your kits?

I have the Mupo K911's which were their most expensive carts. Not sure if I needed to go this high end but they sure made a dramatic difference. The stock forks hitting any type of rough roads, potholes would throw me offline.

Mupo makes a single fork insert that is about $570. https://www.lemickracing.com/shop/ro...1-13-15-detail

I ran into a guy who had it and he said it transformed his bike. The plus is that you don't have to deal with the other fork, which I understand is very difficult to tear down. I may do this this year as after 30k plus hard miles I think the bike is due something in the suspension area.

I may also have traxxion rebuild/revalve the rear shock.

All told this will come to something like $1100.00

interesting, does anyone have an opinion which would be a better insert, the Mupo or Andreani?
