Suspension upgrade for my brutale 910r

I decided I wanted to do something about the harsh suspension on my Brutale. As long as the road is smooth there is no problem, but short bumps are almost directly communicated to my spine. So I found a nice shock/cartridge combo to try to smooth things out. In front I will be getting a Andreani cartridge and in the back there will be a Bitubo xxf11 Shock. I have post some pictures of the parts, so please let me Know if you have any experience with them. Ps this will be set up just for the streets and yes I know this is overkill for that. 🙂

Nice..... Let us know how it rides.

I just dialed out some high speed compression damping on the shock to take the harshness out. Of course, she is still pretty stiff !!

Just did these Adreani cartridges on my 2015 F3 800, and without even dialing them in, they are night and day difference to the stock suspension. The compliance over bumps, and tracking are much improved. Look forward to dilaing them in, and comparing them to my Ohlins on my 675R & 1199S.

The shock I did a adreani revalve and an ohlins spring, and it feels much better also. Trying to not go to crazy on this bike.

Will be out on track next month, and will see how well these perform.

Finally got my suspension fitted

Today i went to pickup my bike from my suspension guru and went on a nice 150km drive with the new suspension.
And i must say i like it, it's still not a touring bike but it a lot more comfortable than before, it feels like it's glued to the road and that's with Michelin touring tires. Very happy with the result.
