You obviously still don't understand....but, having said that you've made my point in your last sentence.  The DDC CANNOT be upgraded!
My comment was referring to traditional systems...as of old. I wouldn't want to interfere with the DDC as for me it is spot on.
Last word?

But that's not what you said.   :087:

Happy DDC works for you.
Why is common sense so uncommon?

I apologize to the OP for the continuation of the hijacking of this thread!  :431: :431:



Here are my thoughts and impressions (not that anyone really cares). I envy all the owners that are smaller in stature than myself, and am glad that it works for you, I wish it worked perfectly for me as well.

I love the idea of DDC and the ability to adapt to road surfaces and riding style, unfortunately it does not work for me. Yes, I can re-spring to my weight, but that is not the issue!! the BIG issue (apart from my weight  :001:) is the fact that the valving/electronics/algorithms can not be adjusted to help the DDC work with the upgraded/stiffer (or lighter if that is the case) springs.

I liked having the option to choose 'soft' when taking the highway, and then flipping to 'hard' when up in the twisties, but when pushing on a little(especially on not smooth as butter roads) the front end did not give me the greatest confidence, and often bottomed out even under moderate braking.

I love the DDc on this bike the feature I use the most.

So probably for those for who this system is not working maybe that of the MT10-SP would work or? Similar systems are present on other bikes, probably that would be an option.

Still only a better ride than the s1kr will lure me into an SP and that won't be the case I am "almost" certain.  :164: :016:

BTW thanks for the suspension posts, one always learn something.
