Robert, why do you automatically assume the wilbur shock is raced and needs racer feedback for proper settings? I run Penske on the last 4 bikes and for the street they are fine IMO. The stock is junk and the penske is made for my weight and i just tune the rest at home, no biggie. I have yet to see penske's just blow up or fail due to poor quality.

I have seen somebody run through 2-3 different springs and valvings on a Ohlins to get it right so how does that make it superior? I do agree for track use having the Ohlins feedback is helpful but the penske and or Elka are damn nice shocks for street bike who do a track day or two IMO.

Wim, what muffler do you have there they look kewl. How is that wilbur anyhoo? they are from Jersey and i saw them at the Javit show last year and they looked very nice. I know the BMW guys use them and they have a very good following.
