I did front and rear springs.  The springs made a huge difference.  I wouldn't have done just the front springs if I didn't have a seal failure.  I needed to have the forks opened up so only had enough with the labour to afford springs.  Totally worth the investment though.

There's a couple threads on here about suspension all are good.  Springs and cartridges transform the front.  Still not perfect, but much more better.  The springs alone helped.

The spring alone helped remarkably in the rear as well.  When the rear get's worn I'll replace it.  When I have the elusive "extra" money I'll do the front.

I'm just working my way through the necessities for now.
Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.

Hyperpro Springs really improved the front.  All vibration is gone for me.  Good cheap upgrade.  Not perfect, but a meaningful and noticeable improvement.  I replaced the entire rear shock with a Hyperpro unit.  Though I am not a fan of its design, it dramatically improved the rear.  The combination of the two was a very good investment.  IF it did not work, I was going to sell the bike.  Overall, a much better ride and much better handling characteristics.

Good afternoon fellows
I just received a hyperpro spring kit, and I didn't rest until I went to talk to my mechanical friend to assemble, but he warned me that the rear shock is damaged so it has to be replaced or repaired and he doesn't know It is still repairable, because I did not know the CT model. Ask for your help, if they know if it is repairable or if you only sell the shock absorber, very grateful for your help. :440:

Also did front and rear springs.  Totally transformed the bike for the positive.  It performs great with me only and no boxes.... but also performs great, totally loaded and 2-up.

If it is not repairable, I have an OEM shock I am willing to sell.  But, I do believe it is rebuildable.  I don't know if the shipping would make it cost-prohibitive.  In any case, standing offer should you wish to purchase it.

Dear Friend "MZ Florida"
First of all I want to thank you for the proposed sale of the shock absorber that I would like to consider, but I am on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean despite being at the tip. Yesterday I put the CT in the workshop of my mechanic friend, removed the rear suspension and already disassembled the shock absorber, told me that it is repairable although not planned because there is no gas outlet, this mechanic is very experienced and ingenious not denying a good mechanical / hydraulic challenge. The shock is completely undone and he told me that in the next few days I would be presented with a suspension that I will not recognize, I hope he is right because I want my fantastic CT back quickly, because I love this bike and sometimes I don't even fully understand why.
I will keep you abreast of developments. Hug to everyone

Hallo! My kit came, and waiting for my friend to help me insall this!
I have question for you guys allready having hyperpro!
Did you find good seting from preload and rebound point!
Thay did send 15w oil and only 1,2 kliks open on the front! Is this 1,2 kliks open from max, contra klock?
If original oil is 5-10w and 7 kliks open from max, does this mean, that oem oil flows to fast through the valve, so we have to fast rebound after compression!? Coul that give this harsh vibreiting filing on bad wavy road?
