I was in your same boat six weeks ago. My research pointed me to Ohlins or Mupo for the shock and Mupo carts. I ended up with an Ohlins TTX36 shock only because I liked the look more than the Mupo shock. I went with Mupo K911 carts which is the high end racing model. Mupo makes one cart that is somewhat cheaper than the 911 which fits the hyperstrada but I said what the heck. My suspension guy did not recommend Andreani based on quality? nor Nitron based on lack of US based service.

RSL has detailed experience with this same question, and one other member Zipp? put Race Tech valves in and seems happy. I have Race Tech front and back on my CRF250 and it's amazing.

So much information on this thread, and others here and other forums.

I spent the time reading before spending my money. A worthwhile process yhat has me satisfied with my Mupo decision.

In addition, having either the time, tools and ability or a 1st rate suspension person is important.

First day which included Alderpoint Road, which may better classified as a goat road. Rough and potholed is a understatement. The other riders were very concerned about bent rims.

The Mupo performed at a level that matches the supermoto design of the bike. Specifically, the fork cartridges ameliorated the hits that came through the handlebars before. The shock can still kick your bottom but it still absorbs where before it would throw the rear tire in the air.

A smooth part of Alderpoint Road:

Alderpoint is a great suspension tester road for sure! I like it best on my DR650, but my set up old Vstrom did well there too. There are some nice dirt roads in the area that take you South down past Zenia, Ketenporn all the way to Covelo. Lots to explore in every direction.

From Covelo there is a nice paved road heading East. Not bad. Lots more up North as you've discovered. Have fun! Safe Travels!

Seeing the pix of those CA roads makes me want to head seriously south again. Haven't ridden any of those roads in about 5 years! So many great roads between the coast and inland in both NCal and Scal.

Sorry for the thread jack!

The Suspension Thread!!! BOOING

Contacted Revzilla about the delay with the forks..

"I am sorry to hear that you have not yet received your Nitron Fork Cartridges.

We have reached out to Nitron and they claim that the cartridges should ship within the next two weeks; they are currently awaiting the arrival of some parts needed for assembly.

That said, Nitron is sincerely sorry for the delay and has upgraded you to the TVT Pro Kit as an apology. They have also agreed to offer free service on your suspension components when needed because of the delay.

I hope their resolution is acceptable, but feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Thanks"

Sweet!

Nitron is well regarded. Where are warranty claims handled? What about periodic fluid changes?
