            Hey Zoran, it's been a long time!
            Hoping to get about 6.5" front and rear for IOM plans.

              Get forks and swingarm from supermoto bike. If to much travel it is easier to shorten travel than extend.
              I have whole supermoto bike I will sell cheap
              I am getting old, can't remember name behind your screen name.

                    Hoping not to scare myself too much and keep in contact with the road as much as possible!

                        I would agree that you'll be OK over there on the SV. my set up for AFM is an 06 GSXR front end and the Penske Triple shock. That same set up won the champion ship AND turned out to fair very well in supermoto. The shock and forks took a hell of a beating on the landings and worked well enough to clear the table top.

                        at the IOM, you won't see that violent of jumps over the rises... and I doubt you'll have as rough of a pavement as we had out here at RFR :biggrin:. I'd stick with the usual set up.

                        I tend to run my suspension on the soft side and at 225lbs it did more than a great job holding up.
