Looks like we have the same bike, i went almost the same route like you with my suspension upgrades.
Also Adreani cartridges for the front, but i went with a bitubo shock for the rear. The bike is still very firm, but i like it much better like this, the suspension is now so good that i can do controlled stopies when i brake hard, because i have so much feeling for what the front tyre does. Found that out when i did a motorcycle handling course yesterday.
You will love your bike.

Hi Guys - dropping my bike off at Fast Bike Industries Monday to get a fork cartridge replacement and new Nitron Shock installed. I'm so excited I feel like a little kid at christmas.
Also, do any of y'all have thoughts on the Liqui Moly engine oil? It meets all of the tech specs.

All of the work I have had done by the good folks at Fast Bike Industries has been exemplary. You picked well!
As for the GAP...we would welcome you there! Love meeting new folks and enjoying the great riding in that area. You can make reservations right up to the event!

|Airkitty||You just made my weekend! It's nerve racking doing transactions like this long distance via email. They seem nice and the resume's look impressive. Hopefully this works well and the wife and I will be able to join you guys at the Gap. Last time we rode the gap on the ducati the main bearing on the crank shaft went bad and toasted the engine. Ouch!|

|Airkitty||I'm hoping to get the suspension work completed around the middle of June. Yes, I'll update this thread with results of the work and parts.|

Thanks Guys, especially silentservice703. I did work through your instructions as best as I was able but never could get the bike working like I wanted. I had a small windfall of cash and contacted Fast Bikes Industries to get a Nitron R3 with remote preload adjuster shock and an Andreani Misano cartridge kit for the forks. I'm hopeful with the new parts and a professional setup all will be good. Can you think of a reason I should not follow this avenue? Again, thank you all for welcoming me to the family and the sage advice.
Attached is a photo of my grandson. He now climbs on the bike and acts like he's riding = proud grandpa
Also a photo of me at the beach near Charleston, in February. Don't hate me for being able to ride year round because it never gets that cold outside.
