    Ha, I'm the same as you. I weight about 86kg with gear and have it dialed in with the correct sag.

    It's OK but I can't see why everyone goes mad for it???

    Send me your non-ddc bike and some cash and I'll give you my 2017 w/ DDC, lol.

    DDC is garbage IMO, I wish I'd never bought it.

    Honestly, if you can find a S1000r (not the sport) - which is hard - bargain them down then spend about £2k on the suspension - it will be one of the best bikes on the road and flexible enough to optimise for the track. DDC is perfect forthe road and gives me everything I need but again well set up, upgraded suspension is a dream too !  I could now only live with either (DDC or upgrades) and not standard manufacturers suspenders (any / all) oem

    Lucky you.

    I wish I could get close to the target sag measurements, but me being heavy f*cker makes that impossible, I get to choose between super-stiff and I'm sore after an hour of riding, or soft and the suspension bottoms out all the time and I'm sore after an hour of riding.

    I know this is years later, but I've just had my DDC model switched over to manual K-TECH shock and cartridges and the bike is a whole lot better off for it. Avoid electronic suspension at all costs. It may be a pose but it's rubbish.

    Just looking to see if anyone has done the impossible and gone from a stock (non ddc) to ddc s1000r conversion?
    Iíve done my best to skim thru previous forums and Iíve seen plenty of ddc to ohlins conversions topics but none of non ddc to ddc upgrade...

    I have a non ddc 2017 s1r and Iíve got the opportunity to grab the front end off a 2016 s1000r ddc with the electronic rear shock plus other bits to salvage off it.. I realise it wonít be a straight swap and could possibly be the most difficult idiotic thing to do incl the software change/upgrade but Iím looking to see if anyone has done it before or if itís even reasonably feasible, and if anyone can give me any information about it.. 

    And before you start, yes I realise I shouldíve just got the ddc package initially when I bought the bike so save it, Im a fool and Im always doing things the hard way 🙃.. Iím just seeing whatís been done.. I just figured Iíll ask and worse comes to worst Iíll look at ohlins suspension upgrade

    Regards
