No it is not a "must", if your sag on the rear is ok.

The rear shock is´nt so bad, only if youre in "hurry" in higher temperatures the damper is too soft

I have both and I like it very much. For me it was worth the investment. :169:

changing the rear shockabsorber is not so difficult  but it is not really necessary.the rear shock and spring will do under normal conditions.

I had the front springs changed by a local mechanic, as he had the kit to do it, and I changed the rear shock myself, very straightforward.

I am 105Kgs and once two up with luggage needed more adjustment than the stock shock would give, even with a new spring. Also whne out of the bike you realise how cheap and nasty the stock one is!

Not regretted my Hyperpro upgrade at all, love the way the bike rides now.
Once you realise we're all mad, life starts to make sense.
