    Thank you! What would you recommend for a 165 lb rider (w/o gear)? 0.75kgmm?

    Thanks again for the information. When i order the RT shocks and fork kit (through you), at what point will i give my weight info? I only ask because I noticed it isn't on the product page.

    Is that an Ohlins shock? Is there an application for the V7 now?

    That image is *HEAVILY* Photoshopped. As of right now, there is no part # per se, though they likely can be custom built, but they won't be cheap. Contact me direct email for more info; Todd at GuzziTech.com
    Unrelated/related, I am now able to offer the Ital-Ohlins fully adjustable cartridge kits, which require fork modification on a lathe. Info HERE or click pic below:

    Awesome to hear Ohlins is finally showing some love. Hope it has both rebound & comp adjustment.

    Yup, rebound in one leg and compression in the other.

    I do like that Zard exhaust. Looks more like a dirt bike than a scrambler, though.

    Oh that's the Andreani kit - I've seen that. I was thinking Ohlins released a kit under their own name.

    Emailed a guy in NY who told me K-tech might be offering a V7 cartridge along the lines of the Andreani. He's getting them to look at building one for his bike which might result in a product; all speculation at this point in time.

    There's a small handful of products out there right now; i.e. I also work with Traxxion, who offers a great full cartridge kit. Cost is ~$1250 all in. Interested?

    I'm trying hard to bring products that I know work quite well for less money. So it just depends on how much you want to spend. If people want to invest the same amount of time and money I have over the last 15 years, please do, just share the info and how much you spend. ;)

    I can also offer a kit to fit the Ohlins forks shown below for your V7. Cost would be ~$3500 or so including the forks built to order. Ping me direct email if interested; Todd at GuzziTech.com

    I'd be interested to hear how the Traxxion compares with the Andreani kit.

    I have Öhlins rear suspension on my bike that I had custom ordered from the factory two years ago (the perks of living in Sweden). Happy with the way the rear is behaving, great improvement even though I 'm not an aggressive rider.
    Really have to do something about the forks to get the entire bike together though so I'm following this post with great interest.

    Random question about rear suspension. I'm assuming that you can fit any rear suspension brand on the V7, as long as you have correct sizing. What are the magic numbers to follow?

    Basically you need to decide what components you want, then let Todd know. He will ask you what your weight is, and have the suspension components matched to your weight. When you get your shocks/ fork kit/ or both, you can dial it in. I set my for the smoothest ride, and the sag worked out perfectly front and back. I do not know that you can get custom made Canadian parts. I do know that I am very happy with the Racetechs on the back and the Mupo kit up front. Hope this helps.

    installing the matris kit finally. sorry for my ignorance but cant find a definite answer. when installing and filling the oil level with the spring in, do i push down/collapse the forks completely and fill to 60mm gap? that seems not right, thats basically the top of the spring.
