It might be more functional but sure as hell isn't any prettier!

Just fitted my Matris forks. Big improvement even before I start fiddling. Money well spent.

What brand of forks are used in the GRiSO?


I was about to order a set of Matris cartridges for the Multistrada 1000DS forks.
Scotty (susp guru) says no need, the Showa 43mm forks are brilliant to work with and very easy to achieve big results. Will endeavor to find out more in the near future.

Yup, and despite the hangover 'Jap' bigotry they are very good. Thing is they are generally a 'One size fits all' solution and there are ways of doing things that are better and, in the long run, cheaper, than busting arse getting the Showa's perfect.

To my mind suspension is the most important thing if you want to get the best out of your road bike! Especially as you get older. Brakes? At my stage of life the stock set up with 244HH pads is more than adequate. The suspension though? Well you can improve it a lot.

I've just bought a set of Sachs off an APRC Tuono-V4 and will get some Adreani cartridges for them simply because I want to compare them to the Ohlins and Matris. Great road holding AND comfort are really important to me now.

If you live in a temperate environment-watch them rot. If you live in a dry place, fine. Fecking Showa.

My Geegaws so far:
- KD Knight lower Pegs
- Bar Risers
- MG rear rack & Bag
- Dart Screen (small one)
- USB/Cig Lighter power outlet (tucked between gauge cluster & Dart)
- Norge Style Plastic Mirrors

I want to add bar end mirrors, but that's about all I want to do.

That's pretty well the same set up I have now, Bulldog, except tank bag when needed.

Look at the Hind sight / Blind side combo when and if you do go barend with your mirrors. I love em.

My Matris forks are on order. Almost done tinkering....he says, knowing he's probably full of shit..... Smile

Still chasing right fuelling so refitted wideband kit and mounted gauge up front so I can see it while I'm experimenting on the road. Think that counts as geegaw now that its visible.
