New Ktech razor Suspension set up front and rear.

So as per the title few days ago i have had a full set up installed by KAIS in manchester, new uprsted springs and pistons in the forks and fully adjustable rear shock, i am still playing about with it to see what suits me best, sk far i have been impressed, no buckaroos i have been down several regular roads and i am normally out of the seat with every bump but now no chance, its feel alot more planted and stable into corners and also at high speeds obviously 70 and below 😉😉 ..even had a good run out to the lake district with friends so it got a proper testing out ...very happy with it...so now just the carbon to finish 😁 here are the obligatory pictures that everyone loves....oh yes almost forgot it came with a stainless braket for the damper and that just wont do against my phantom so off to powder coaters the next day..satin black!!...just need to change them **** silver bolts!!.....and some nice indicators 😎

Great report. Glad to hear the suspension money was well spent and your bike is quicker and more stable where the roads get fun. Your bike looks very good, too.

Being a cheap skate I went with the Yamaha R1 rear shock using an adapter, backed the rebound and compression off two clicks each in the front and one ring softer on the preload and I'm really happy with how it handles now. As you say no more trying to kick me off the bike or pogo action and only cost me 185.00.

That was a bigger bite than a hungry crocodile on the OP.
Thought the same too like R1.

Got it in one, I think Oli was concerned with clearance issues and the potential of being sued if he sold them commercially and the shock reservoir hitting the swinging arm. I bought it on the basis of absolving him of any such liability if things went wrong.


So far I haven't had any issue with it and I ride on anything but main roads, it's all back road twisties, and despite hitting some unseen bumps at rather silly speeds it hasn't been a problem, loving it so far and I've done the thick end of 1000 miles on it now.

More cars and bikes over the years than I should have done!
