So, what do you want to accomplish with the suspension mods, especially the front?

And what model is the fork kit? I didn't see any 1050 kits on their site (nor anyone else's for that matter.)

alright fellers, here's the deal on the suspension. There are 3 versions, Fork Springs only ($159.95), Rear Spring only ($109.95) and the Combi Kit which is Front, Rear and Synthetic Fork Oil for $249.95. You can order this anyway you like from Steve Larson at Annitori Distrubuting...

When I purchased my Zard from Steve, we were talk'n suspension, and he told me about the kit, and that sorry arse ended up talk'n me into it and "upsold" me one. :wink: :-D

To answer your questions about the springs being 'progressive', yes, both the rear and front springs are constant rising rates. As for the color of the rear spring, I was informed that they can get them in certain colors, but they will only be ordering their stock in one color, so if you guys can all agree on a color ya like, I can relay the message, and they can git the rear springs in that color. :wink: :-D

one of the main things I'm look'n to accomplish with the front Goffe, is rid her mostly of the front end dive when on the brakes. I read a nice report on a guy that installed this kit on his FZ1 and his impressions sounded very good. You can read about his supsension upgrade here --------> clicky :-D

Black works for me.

I am very interested in your riding impressions with the springs after a few weeks. This may be what many of us bigger riders have been looking for.

Are MOST Brits under 80kg?

Looks like he's got a fender "mod" on his truck also
oh, and yes, the truck has quite a few front end mods. :hihi: Bumper, grille, fender, hood, and a few others. But what can I say, gave $800 fer her and she hasn't caused me a bit of trouble in 2 years. :wink: :-D

Limey - Now THAT is funny!
I have a couple of Brit cars. The manuals for both suggest suspension and alignment with 80 kg in each seat. The Speed Triple seems to be set up for near the same weight as far as shocks and springs - especially as you add power.
