I got my Penske!

Thanks to Gen3Dc I got a Penske for my beloved 919... got it installed today in about an hour.

Stoked...

Bike just feels right now... I base my thoughts on the way the WP suspension works on my Superduke which has the best setup I've ever thrown a leg over...

Glad you like it! I hadn't even played with the settings, and I felt an immediate difference. Was my first suspension upgrade to any of my motorcycles. Made such an impression on me that I went out and got the same shock for the 04 gixxer 1k I bought. New springs and revalving for the forks too. I think every bike I get from now on will have worked suspension.

That's going to be a lot of shock sales.

Im still sorting the Hi an lo speed compression, but I think my preload and rebound are spot on.
I also used the ride height function (10mm) to raise the tail slightly

between the ride height, and the 1100 lb spring it all worked out great for a fat boy

What did you do about locking that spring collar?
