Yep, as gary says, wilbers the number one choice, I have one on my R, top quality.

Hi guys , thanks for your response . Which one do you use as i see two versions .?
Best place to buy ?

As above,great quality at a reasonable price,I would recommend going for the F2 shock as the extra length really does improve the turn in and does away with the heavy feel of the front end.

I use the wilbers 640, which has adjustable damping, pre load, and plus or minus 5mm height adjustment which equates to 15/20mm at rear wheel,
All the shocks come custom made to your weight, riding style and shock length if you require…

Hi Phil, I’m also looking at the Wilbers as a replacement for my VF1000RF
Did you go for the F2 as suggested by bif?
Many thanks
