I suppose they have to do that with the factory version damper so that people can't set it so tight that they might crash because they can't slow-speed steer because of too much damping. I'd rather have one that actually works like it should so it would be better to not have one from the factory and cut the cost off of the price and let me buy my own so that I can get something that actually works.
DITTO... the factory Ohlins on my '07 was GHEY.

BTW, I still have it, anyone want to buy it?

is it a dampener tube style?

A bit plus for our oem dampeners are to drain the fluid and fill w 90 or 140w oil. One little screw you drain and refill with.

Awsomes the bnest

It needs a Much smaller Exhuast Canister. Hopefuly a slip on is in the works.'

I just looked at all the 09 600s from Suzuki, yamaha, and the kawi is the best looking , Smaller, less ferings smaller tail and looks very futuristic.:thu mb::thum b::thumb :
