Hyperpro spring upgrade
I really did not want to invest 1200 and up to change what I thought were poor dampers. I noticed that the Hyperpro spring only upgrade was very well regarded over on the LT forum.
Got in touch with Klaus at epmperf.com and he hooked me up with the springs for my weight and riding style (more sport than touring and 6'4" 220 pounds).
Winter has lifted and the newly sprung K1200GT is finally back on the road with the new springs! Wow. What a difference. My bike has 16,000 miles on it and the problem was apparently not the shocks. I can tell you that these Hyperpro springs transformed the GT without replacing the shocks. The bike went from a easily bottoming mushy bike to a firm great handling bike.
My last Sport Touring bike was a Ducati ST4S with Ohlins rear and revalved Ohlins front fork so I know what a great handling sport touring bike is.
