    Hi All;

    Still loving my Anniversario, but the suspension, not so much.

    I find myself feeling like I'm on a bucking bronco at times when going over pot holes and bumpy sections. Almost enough to unseat me on the big bumps.

    I am thinking of the Matris V7 F15K for the front end and Ikon shocks (7610-1687) for the rear. I have read many good/great things about the Matris kit so am pretty confident about that. Have not hear much about the Ikon's. What are peoples opinions about these components?

    I am about 215 lbs fully geared up for the road.

    Thanks
    Maya

    Check the store tab and contact Todd direct. He has plenty of experience setting up suspension for people.

    I’m a little heavier than you and I installed Ikons a few months ago. They make a huge difference, the road is definitely much more bearable and you don’t notice minor bumps or small potholes anymore. Just keep in mind they are a more budget level shock don’t expect Cadillac smoothness

    Thanks ;

    That is what I was looking for. I would love to get the K-Tech PB shocks, but at more than 3 times the cost of the Ikon's, I just do not have the budget for them.

    The K-Teck PBs are what i have from Todd. I LOVE them! I wanted something that could handle me out for a solo ride through to my wife and i with camping gear. Not an easy ask. They are great for that but yes they are not cheap. If i sell the bike though i can take them off and on sell for a good return. I still havnt done anything about the front end though.
