Go to a suspension specialist. I did with my previous XRx and it transformed the bike.

What brand did you change to? I see Ohlin and Touratech have them, now Maxton. Any others?
Thanks

Ok, I narrowed down to
1. Ohlins w hand adjuster $1,100 USD
2. Touratech w tool adjust $800
3. Nitron w tool adjust ~$800
4. Maxton-need to explore more

I had a Nitron rear shock fitted and Andreani Front cartridges also, brilliant.

I went to Steve Jordan Performance in Great Bookham, Surrey, they went through all the weights to be carried, luggage and bodies. Expensive but to me worth it.
