As a person that isn’t mechanically it inclined, I’ll end having a shop I trust do the work. In the past I considered the upgrades for my VTX, and the expensive upgrade was shelved. In that case I just upgraded the rear shocks a bit.Cost wise I'd be looking at Kappa luggage then. Motostorm is a great place to buy it online, they are in Italy where Givi/Kappa is located. Shipping took a while on my last order, but that was because I ordered it mid European Covid shutdown.
Curious what $1000 worth of suspension upgrades look like for a Vstrom. Seems like a lot unless you are paying to have it installed.
