K tech is running a special half off suspension set up in England, for our overseas riders. Here is the link to Visor down. They have awesome fork kits and rear shocks for Rsv4's, but on this day they will help tune your stock stuff

I saw this yesterday, but their main place is a bit far away from me, but I gave them a retweet yesterday anyway. :)

Isn't that the shock that Jr. did as good with the Ohlins out of the box without any tuning? That's the one we were talking about at the track right? $2500 for the shock for the v4?

Looks like $1700

Yes Mike,
At Chuckwalla he actually went .5 secoonds quiker than the ohlins.
a 148.3 as I remember. we were going to test the forks also but the sand storms
prevented it. The price is about $1700 for the shock. Tige Dane at Cycle Mall, he is the Bridgestone dearler also handles them. Pretty imprressive equipment.
Not worth flying to England though for a set up day.

I might just have to sell my TTX and upgrade the shock. I need to go an extra .5 seconds quicker on the street! Plus it's more expensive than the TTX too. My TTX is the spanner adjustable for sag instead of the newer worm gear version anyhow. That's reason enough to upgrade.

I just don't know if I can put the K-Tech on my Ohlins equipped Factory. If I had an R-model it would definitely be an option.

And it's only $1700 instead of the $2500 I originally thought. Now that's a bargain. It's like I'm saving money. They are practically giving it away now!
