Just come back from trackday at snetterton in the uk.
The mupo shock improved the bike alot and i got alot better tyre wear.
I think i managed a sub 2 min lap which im really chuffed about but the bike still had a few issues that were holding me back from going quicker still.
Happy but frustrated

10Arghh Nice one...

A lot of bikes getting stolen in Essex at the moment so be careful what and where you post pictures of your bike.

Looking good though.

Did you consider anodizing in green to match the fairings? I always think of Christmas when I see red and green together.
Well I came to the conclusion it's what's missing from the bike is a bit of red.
If you look at the sykes rep it's got red on it and it looks the business in my opinion.
I'll get pics up soon as I get some time spare to fit it all. Having trouble hosting the pic's. Photobucket blocked all my old links so I need to host elsewhere

I like to tinker and was going to get correct spring rate before I install and then test it out and try to fine tune from there. Should I spend the money on a revalve too before installing? Any advice for spring rate? I'm 90kg plus gear so probably around 92kg in total, and bike spends majority of time on track...
Basically the mupo is a nice bit of kit.
Its got more adjustability and also remote preload adjuster and it looks better.
The stock gen5 shock has always been pretty good to me except on track where mine overheated. But thats probably not the shocks fault. If it was sprung for my weight i expect it would have been alot better.
I would try just a spring first. I cant see a revalve would be worth doing
