$2500 to spend

hey I need some help My wife pre-aproved my holiday gift and she said I can spend $2500 on my bikes so this in my 2 option
1- finishes building my panigale suspension I already got the rear TTX shock and I would like to buy the ohlins fork, the panigale has a full system.

2- buy the ttx for the f4 or get ohlins fork? i got the full rg4 system already

I know I can spend my money anyway I want but I just want your guys input and witch bike should I improve the suspension, I was thinking on buying the catrige kit for both but I cant find a kit for the mv

Don't bother with the Panigale. No matter what you do, you won't get the Panigale's back end to settle. A good friend of mine is going through that now. He already has TTX shock and ohlins fork cartridge kit in it. Tried 4 different rear springs, geometry changes, etc. Still a bucking bronco.The Ohlins shock on the F4 is magic. Not only is it much more compliant but there is noticeably more mechanical grip. When I finally put the Ohlins shock on my bike I kicked myself for waiting 2 years before I did it!

you just describe my problem with the panigale the rear is better with the ttx but now the front is allover the place. so you said that is a good idea to do the rear on the mv how about the front? what you recommend?

No, $2500 is what your wife set your limit to not the sky.
No need to get the wife's approval, she will do what she's told.

There is a fine line between discretion and valor, as well as between bravery and stupidity. I've been married for almost 29 years to an Irish-Catholic redhead and have well identified that line.
