That sounds like a very good price. What spring rate did they choose for the forks, and what do you weigh?

I still like the standard Strada shock, needed the hydraulic preload adjuster yesterday. It seems to be sprung and damped well enough even when I'm two-up.

The spring rate they went with for the forks was .85 and I'm 240ish. It seemed like a pretty good deal installed. I could have gone with a triple click rear shock for a bit more but I figured it would have been wasted on me. I very glad I got this first and saved my exhaust/PC5/tune for later.

Many other details that make them a lot better. Worldwide them and Ohlins are tied at #1. Now we finally have a dealer in the USA wooo

Some details for the Cart. and Shock.

Shock

Part# A02DUC042

Cylinder in steel 46 mm (in steel for AB1)
The piston rod 16 mm and coated in PVD
The heads and the lower joints are CNC made in hard anodised Ergal
Adjustment features:
Rebound 40 positions
Compression 24 positions
Spring preload (C-spanner) or optional hydraulic spring preload
Adjustable length

Fork Cart.

Part# C03DUC047

The cartridge is 25 mm in diameter and made in Ergal coated and hard anodized
The piston rod is 12 mm in diameter and made in Ergal
The progressive system pistons are 25 mm in diameter and complete with D.U. bushings
Guiding bush and floating piston rod
Compression needles
SAE 5 Mupo racing oil
Spring in chrome-silicon steel with Ergal guiding spring Fork, top caps, with spring preload on bearings
Adjustment features:
Rebound 40 positions
Compression 48 positions
Manual spring preload 30 positions (15 mm)


The following set/custom for each rider by weight/riding style/riding setting(ie Track,Road/Track,Road)

Springs, Oil Weight, Valves!


Fork : A modification kit designed to transform o/e fitted front forks into competition ones. Done simply by replacing the whole group of original cartridges with our Cartridge SP, fitted with larger pistons and a progressive system, altogether guaranteeing more precision and better performance.

This kind of cartridge is specifically studied for the motorcycle where the hydraulic adjustment is only in one leg.
Not sure I understand "Well MUPO is the only suspension company that at the base price you get the entire cartridge, forks or shock built to you for no additional charge including valving. " They're charging a lot for something.

The racetech cartridge emulator is pretty sophisticated and the whole rebuild is customized for the rider's needs.

It does seem that mupo offers a lot of adjustments - I guess the question is: Do you need this on the forks (as opposed to the rear shock). If you're doing track days it might be useful to have a specific setting for that, and one for the street. Otherwise do people really do new settings for the road once they find what they like?

I'd also question the need for progressive springs on a street bike - seems like a recipe for a lot fork dive, and the way the emulators work takes into account slow and fast rebound etc..

Seems like a lot of scratch with little real world advantage.

That's the same rate as RT put in mine, but I only weigh 170 in my gear. It's still tons better than the stock .62!

And hey appliance821, you are right on with your comments. Once I get the setup right, I leave it alone.

Hmm...that doesn't seem right then. I swear he said 85 but you'd think we'd have different rates considering out weight difference. I ran out of the shop before they could finish writing up all the details but I'll get them later this week when I go pick up my spare parts!

The spring rate they choose has a lot to do with what you tell the suspension guy your goals are with the bike. It is not the same for a track rider as it is for a two up tourer and everything in between.

If you took your bike to a reputable shop, I wouldn't necessarily second guess them right away.

Oh I definitely am not second guessing them...I'm second guessing my memory! I know KFG does amazing work based on my riding nirvana the last few days and by all the excellent reviews from the local riding community.

It's killing me to be sitting at my desk right now when the weather is drying out/warming up outside (60 degrees on the way to work today!).

We have 4 feet of snow in Boston - feel my pain.

i just recieved a e-mail from The Nitron sales department that they are planning a shock for us. Sadly no ETA at this time.

Anyone ever run the standard 13-15 Hypermotard rear shock on the Strada? Reason for asking, is I know the standard HM has an adjustable spring seat, both probably have similar spring rates.. which might equate to being able to achieve proper seat sag for lighter riders..
