They are truly a beautiful piece of work Erich. Very nice indeed.

As I said before, it┤s a slow process. Finally got the lower legs glassblasted. Powdercoating will come before end of this year. Sorry, don┤t have any pics.

I went with Matris (carpimoto) units and they were joy to install. I did lathe off 25mm though for my weight - my gear is very heavy. Very happy with the package

Steven, I seem to recall you put emulators in your better half's Thruxton at one point (or am getting confused?)

If I did recall correctly, I am curious about how the Carpimoto cartridges compare with the emulators?

The emulators will be fine if your 70kg or so but i found that there was still too much fork dive and was too soft in hard corners. I am 100 kg in full battle gear and wanted something much firmer for my style. Have search. I did a speel on it. Pm me if you have any questions

I had RaceTech emulators for several years and was very satisfied with the performance but any cartridgekit will be better than emulators.
Notice the difference between the c-kits. My Andreani/Íhlins-kit is fully adjustable, spring preaload , compression and rebound, both 30 positions.

I'm pretty much a noob at this kind of stuff, but how do get them dialed in? Just ride around and keep adjusting until you get the feel you want?
