I have got some good feed back from Stake and Old Squid, so fill me in on the shock thing, lots of chat rooms say use the mille unit. The one I rode (back to back with a mille) didn't seem to bad, I thought it just was not set up for a 210# rider. It did have all the other hop-ups done, and I felt it was easier to go fast on than the mille, that will start shit with the mille guys for sure! p.s. I found a left over 2001 for 9500.00 is that good for a aprilla?
