I finally took the Vee out for a proper suspension shakedown today up one of my favorite local twisty roads. I'm quite pleased with the new shock and fork springs, they definitely make the bike handle the way it ought to. It's much more planted in turns now and doesn't feel like a pogo stick after going over a dip in the road.
I let my friend ride it for a bit who has a stock-suspended Vee and he said it feels like a completely different bike, echoing my statements above. I think it's pretty hard to beat the progressive rear shock for the money, and I have to give another shout out to Blair at SV Racing parts for his advice on the fork springs.
