Default Andreani Fork Valve kit.

Hi all.

I had Andreani valve kit and Ohlins springs fitted to my forks today. All ready just riding home it feels allot better than stock. I am 220 pounds and 6 foot 2. We will be having a track day on Sunday and I will report back on how they handle. Price and fitment was about $ 600.

I am happy to report back that the valve kit was a huge improvement. The front end feels so planted that it feels like a new bike. Where I used to feel like I was going to loose the front end,,,,I now feel like I am going to slowly thru the corner. And I can now brake much later and the bike feels planted. I shaved 2 seconds of my lap times.

From setup from the workshop, I did one session and only added one line of preload, not because I felt like I had to but because my cable tie fork travel marker was only 5 mm from the bottom. And the bike also feels much more planted coming out of the corner as well.

REALLY WORKS WELL!!

I've done the Andreani kit to the front end of my 2011, and WOW night and day difference! Im at 170lbs. For one, the front end is planted. I mean, I point, IT GOES! Front end is solid! And all I did was valving! I wonder what a fully aftermarket front end suspension feels like...hmmm?

One of my favorite upgrades besides my attack rearsets.

Cant wait to track test soon. Now that the front end is sorted, I'll probably end up swapping my rear susp with aftermarket bits.
