This is great. Your going to love them. You buy the tool kit to install the AK20's?
I assume they re-sprung the shocks for your weight too. Traxxion is the best. I have their Ohlins/AK20 setup and it transformed the handling of the bike.
Let us know how you like it.  :beerchug: :beerchug:

With your experience, you probably already know this.  When mounting the rear Penske shock reservoir, the hose isn't particularly long, and there is only one right way to fish the hose when considering the shock travel.  Good luck.

Well, let's hear it...evolutionary or revolutionary? What grade (1-10) does it get for the s***-eating grin factor?

I already have an Ohlins shock, wondering about the Traxxion fork upgrade- I already have a set of ZX14 forks to send in  ;D

Ok well the Concours is just about finished, it will be done in the am. I looked into the Zx forks, but it really is not needed.
TraxxionĊ› Ak setup for the Connie forks is working the same way but different all at the same time.
As for the Ohlins, i have had 4 sets, and are they worth it,,, well, if you upgrade to the Superbike Valves on a Liter bike, or a Zx14, even a Busa, yes, but very Pricey, The Traxxion / Penske set up for a Concours will definitely hold it own. at half the cost

Did you have a chance to measure the C14 Outer Tube i.d. for the upper bushing?

Thanks
