Looking for better damping and spring rate, particularly when I've got a passenger. The standard suspension isn't too bad but I like to have it a bit tighter. Shock and springs all up (without fitting) $1000 Australian dollars, which is probably about $700 US. Not installing valves in the front at this point. It's really the only performance I'm making to the bike, I'm finding everything is pretty good. I think if I was only going to be riding it myself I probably wouldn't bother too much. The feedback on the shocks on the Bobber forums is excellent though, and the price is pretty good I thought.
Looking at the set up, I was concerned I'd have to remove the rear guard to get at the rear bolt, but as the air box needs to be removed to get at the front bolt, I think that would give me enough space to get at it on the inside..
