Did a cheap suspension fix to my '14 R model by changing out the fork and shock springs for Hyperpro's.

My problem was that when I had the sag set correctly, and enough compression damping to keep things from packing, the bike was so sharp-edged in it's response to bumps that I was both physically uncomfortable, and less confident on the bumpy mountain roads here in S. Cal.

Took it out this weekend - rode from LA to Jocko's in Nipomo (if you've never been, you're missing out) - 150 / 33 / 58 - the bike was superb.

Flowing, supple on the road, just easy to ride way too fast. The road felt like it was 5' wider than usual.

About $250 on eBay plus a few hours work.

I put stiffer springs in my fork with oil gap at 110mm. The ride is so much better now. Also installed a CBR rear adj shock. The combo is fantastic.

185# in shorts and a t-shirt.

The springs are progressive, so there's only one for this bike.
