Wow disappear for a few months and finally some companies decide they should sell parts for your bike!

Due to be shipped back from Italy this week to the UK. If all goes to plan the changeover will be next wee.

Mupo Kit Fitted

The forks arrived at my dealer yesterday and today I have had them fitted. I have ridden just over 30 miles with them along a motorway so no extensive riding with them. I can report that within the first feet of moving off there was a more tactile feel of the road through the bars. Of the few bumps on my return that I was aware of the kick up through the bars was also reduced.

On the rear suspension front I have just checked out Mupo's website and they list a number of options for the HS, including remote preload. Something I will follow up once I have sorted out the between centres measurements for my LS.

David please give us an update when you have put down some more miles. Could you post some pictures of the adjustment caps at the top of the forks please? I'd like to add any info to the opening post of this thread!

Yesterday I had my standard HM forks resprung/valved and a Penske 8983 installed by KFG/GP Suspension. As a big guy (6'2"/240) the stock suspension was mushy and unpredictable. It is a night and day difference after the upgrade.

I get so much more feedback from the front and rear. The bike feels firmly planted yet it absorbs bumps without discomfort. It feels like a new bike...best $1500 I've ever spent on a motorcycle.

My bike was the first 821 HM that they've revalved. They've recorded all of the suspension information and based on my job they're going to start offering a revalve kit soon. They also plan on making a cartage for the 821 after their new CNC machine arrives. I didn't get an ETA on that but, if funds allow, I'll probably offer up my bike to be a prototype for that too.

Already went for a 100 mile ride today...think I might go ride some more!

Ohh awesome! What was the cost on the forks? Could we have more pictures of the shock. I'm wondering how hard it will be to adjust preload. It would be nice to not pay for hydralic preload adjustment when I upgrade.

Too dark for pictures now but here's the manual for the shock to tide you over: http://www.penskeshocks.com/assets/8...K%20Manual.pdf

As for the front shock, it broke down like this:
-Revalve kit: $188
-Springs: $55
-Oil/seal: $64
-Labor: $190

Thanks to a sale, I received parts and labor for the entire project at %25 off!
