    3 weeks ago I had a couple of days touring Dumfries and Galloway, then back past St Marys Loch and down the A68.
    The road surface aint brilliant (lots of pot holes, worn sections and corrugations) and I got so sick of the harsh front end and the aching wrists and hands pushed me over the edge.

    Rang Brook suspension in Bradford, took the forks in and had K-Tech cartridges and springs fitted along with bushes/seals etc, turnaround was 4 working days.
    Picked the forks up, fitted them and last weekend did a very similar route (about 600 miles) over 2 days.
    Now as others have said it dosent transform the bike but it removed most of the harsh damping, the rebound and dive are much better and it corners well enough for my skill level.
    It was useful to run the same route as a comparison ( I have convinced myself it was worth the cost based on back to back test  :007:)

    The only drawback is that I think the rear could do with an upgrade but will need another Scotland trip to decide for sure  :008:

    When I had the front and rear reworked on  my bike with Wilbers kit by Revs in Halesowen it was the front that surprised me the most and was the most noticeable.
