Honestly, I'd say skip it, Mike. From what you've said about how you ride, I don't really think they're worth the investment. $400 isn't chump change (at least not to me). Unless you start doing track days, I'd stick with the stock units.
That said, they are downright gorgeous, and half the guys in AMA seem to run Satos. You can't go wrong with them.
