    Good choice !

    The sky's the limit with the little Kwacker, just look at the Super twins class at the TT. I reckon that budget rear shock is letting you down ( or up ! ), something like a Nitron would sort it. My Hornet has the same sort of rear suspension, direct acting mono shock without a linkage. I used to get banged out of the saddle on certain bumpy roads, fitted an Ohlins shock which made the ride much more controlled and plush.

    For small but powerful bikes I reckon the Yamaha MT07 is worth a look, pity it is so ugly though.

    Probably going to get a Wilbers replacement, not impressed at the extra cost though, none of the reviews pointed out this problem.

    Tell me about it. When I bought the Ohlins shock, I got a small discount from a friend with a trade account, creatively invoiced me for 'lawn mower parts'.

    It cost me about 20% of the price that I paid for the whole bike.
