Do you mean both ends? My major gripe has been with the front end but i reckon to have adjusted it out. Will consider Hyper Pros but still not sure the best way forward. I have a GS which is suspension heaven by comparison - just a pity they couldnt graft a CT engine into  one  :008:

Both ends, and no, the GS is not heaven suspension-wise, the only thing going for it is the telelever, the stock shocks suck big time. I had al my gsses upgraded with hyperpro. Both ends too.

The telelever front end is the biggest thing I miss from my GS, never felt the need to upgrade on it but watching here with interest. Certainly the Hyperpro seems pretty good value

I think half the problem is getting the suspension set up properly for the individual, the factory settings are a general compromise for all riders.
