I'll be using the ohlins fkr100 cartridge kit. I don't have them yet and won't have a real review for a couple months.

I used the ktech dds on my last bike and liked them, just no support up here.

I run K-Tech 35DDS pro rear shock and RDS cartridge kit in the front with Attack triple clamps...

The track is my HAPPY PLACE!

Thank you both for your replies. Scot, what made you switch to the Attack triples vice the Kawasaki "kit" parts. I've heard from a couple people that the Attacks seem to provide a better "feel"... your thoughts?

With the stock clamps on the bike the offset is 26mm which is not bad at all, a very little over trailed..With aftermarket clamps you can set bike up with 27-29mm off set which is where you should want to be.... A bike like the Triumph 675 comes stock with 40mm of offset, Now that's a collar bone breaker!!!! You or I could leave the stock clamps and not have a problem, But racing EXPERT this year makes me LOOK for any advantage I can gain....Good luck with which ever setup you have or go with..Scott

Gen 4 and 5 have a tremendous amount of trail. You can only lower the front so much before hard parts like fairings start to hit. Going to an aftermarket triple like scotman mentioned fixes the issue and allows one to get the right geometry up front.
