hey,
i have recently installed an akrapovic full evo system and a power commander. i just got my bike dyno tuned with the pwr commander and it put down 161.9hp to the wheel. i just ordered new crg levers, spiegler front and rear break lines, a bmc race filter, and a new Ohlins 3 Way Adjustable Shock all from kyle racing, i can't wait to put all of it in.
so does anyone know how hard it is to install that ohlins shock? will it help the handling alot or alittle? well just giving yea a little heads up of whats to come :)

The shock is cake to install ..Search on here " the doctor" has a nice write up on its install.With a bike stand and floor jack,took me maybe 30mins front start to finish to do mine.

Handling is better,but the best thing is to go to a 55 rear at the same time..Then setup the front for your wieght and you are golden.. I love the way mine handles now compaired to stock.

I might be wrong but you should have waited to tune it until you had the BMC's in there too. I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes though. What year bike is this?
