Suspension upgrade

I have been looking for upgrade options online in the uk but until I found Brook Suspension, it looked as if there was only one option! ohlins at £850 for piggyback shocks & £288 for fork internals! Ouch.
The very helpful guy at Brook also offered ohlins & all the other top manufacturers including YSS. These are a much cheaper option approx half the price of the Ohlins equivalent!

Marc at Brooks took the time to explane that YSS are the biggest suspension manufacturer on the planet & their products are as good quality as anything else on the market!

I ordered mine today & went for the non piggyback option all in black with black springs and the fork upgrade kit all in totaled £573.12 inc vat and delivery.
I'll keep you posted with a review and photos once I have got them on the bike

Yeez, wouldn't exactly call that cheap though, even if it's half the price of the ohlins..
Even so, got any links to any of these?

Aha. No worries, I'm not planning on changing any of it. Not at this time at least, I'm satisfied with how it is for now.
