I'm curious about HyperPro shocks & springs. Anyone use them and can give feedback, or knows someone that does or has used them.
Appreciate your time

reading your post about hyperpro is 10 seconds I will never get back....
I hope that tells you something about hyperpro.
The actual physical piece is ok... US Tech support is virtually zero, rebuild parts availabilty is slim. Needed a new seal for a seal head... had to buy the whole seal head because US Hyperpro will not carry seals ( read not cheap)
The whole concept really does not work well for track going motorcycles..most replace the spring for a straight rate.
Buy preferably Penske or ohlins if your dead set on one.

I agree. Progressive rate springs have thier place, but it is not in performance suspension. Bike or car.
Spring rate becomes position dependant. This makes tuning a pain in the a$$. Also, it is nearly impossible to match a damping curve to progressive rate springs.
Progressive rate springs are marketed as effective because it results in low overhead for the supplier - having to carry only one part number spring is much easier and cheaper in terms of invintory and logistics than carrying various rates.
The one experience I have with HyperPro steering dampers is that of riding my buddies Gixxer Thau with a blown one.
Sure look tart, though, what with thier bling-bling gold, homo purple and gurly pink!
