    For those aware of how under-sprung and under-damped the B11/N12 suspension is, I am now offering (in place of my fork spring kit @$139 and emulator kit @$195) a drop-in kit (requires no drilling like the emulator kit) shown below for $399+ shipping. I currently have one in stock. Look for follow-up posts and install pics coming soon.

    For those wanting to try just springs, I still offer straight-rates @$95 - they will also fit the 1200 Sport. The below kit is only available complete.

    The 1200 Sport uses cartridge internals, so re-valving is the only option, which is a service I offer. The below kit will not fit/work on the 12S.

    Contact me direct for info or to order; Todd at GuzziTech.com

    I'll be installing the kit, probably the week of March 5. Currently no room in the garage - Can't wait. My wife's camera is screwed up but hopefully it will be fixed by then. I'll post some pics even if I use my cheapo camera.

    After reviewing the instructions and looking at the parts, it looks like its not going to be too difficult. Gotta find some fork vise blocks or what ever they are called.

    Nothing to add just yet outside I am very happy with the results. Rafael above will be taking pictures and posting his results, unless someone local wants an install. I have one kit in stock at the moment.

    Rafael,
    make sure you do a thorough job, with many pictures..... my future install will depend on you ;) .

    I just installed a Penske rear shock/spring 8975DB (from Todd) on my Norge. The fork spring kit is next.
    I will probably order one as soon as I see your results.... :)

    Thank you,
    Nick
