Beaker...I didn't opt for their shock but I did install the progressive spring that comes with your shock. As far as I'm concerned it transformed the ass end of my 16 1000F. I tip the scales at 210 lbs. and noticed a big improvement on the street over potholes and the small jarring bumps. Much smoother and I followed their settings and it's working great. Very satisfied. Just put on a new 190/55 rear boot and looking forward to get out and test. Enjoy!!

You wouldn't happen to have a link or something similar? I'm pretty close to your weight (205, last I checked, probably still 210 after all them holidays lol), but I'm having difficulties finding where I'd be able to order one, and am very interested!

Jones....Hyperpro.com is their site. They make two different springs for our rides. One is a shorter spring which allows you to lower your bike, which I didn't want because I'm 6'2" tall and the other is the stock length. Their part# is SP-SU10 SSB 022B. Cost is $149 in black and I think $139 in purple. I absolutely love it!! As I said the bike glides over the jolting small stuff and packs down nicely on the twisties. I can't remember the min to max spring rates but it made the bike much more enjoyable to ride. You won't regret it.
Good Luck

Thanks so much! The parts #was what I was having trouble with, I blame being on mobile!

Thanks again! I'm definitely looking into it.

Yes.
I have a remote reservoir for compression but didn't go for the remote preload adjuster. The standard preload ring can still be reached but is is a bit of a fiddle. I didn't feel it was necessary as I seldom need to change the preload.
Rebound is quite close to the bottom of the shock. It's fairly easy to adjust but it is quite close to the exhaust so I keep a glove on when it's hot.
