I have viewed a couple of youtubes of "yellow Wolf" and "Fuse" riding the dragons tail at deals gap...awesome.He says he has a full Traxxion Suspension on his wing.Does anybody know much about this suspension ? I've read mixed reviews about it.Some say it's too rigid in the front, but the back is great with two up and towing a trailer, but lousy with one up....others love it. It's expensive, but I'd like some feed back from you boys in the States.
If you watch the "Traxxion Dynamics Seminar" (which is very interesting), they blame a lot of the notorious "wing wobble" steering problems, on the crappy front suspension from the factory.There are lots of posts in this forum complaining about this, from old bikes to practically brand new ones. They also recommend disabling the anti-nosedive valve to eliminate the 'hardness' of the front forks when braking hard.:confused:
Any thoughts fellas ?

I have spoken with Traxxion directly as well as a couple of their distributors up here in Canada. I'd consider the front full upgrade if I needed to do it, but due to cost, I wouldn't do it unless absolutely needed. I have mixed feelings about the disabling of the anti-dive though.

Yes budoka, the cost aspect of it is a concern. I might leave it alone for the time being.I don't have any problem with wobble, and I'm not a boy racer by any means and most of my riding is one up.But If you watch that seminar, they really don't think much of the factory forks on the GW's generally, or the anti nosedive valve particularly.:eek:
Thanks for your input, mate.

I know a guy that thinks it is the greatest thing since sliced bread. When I met this guy at the dragon, I had trouble pulling away from him. He was on a wing, and I was on my FJR 1300. I know on my wing, I sure would like to handle better on the curves, and I am seriously considering having my new wing upgraded. The suspension just seems sloppy. The front end support could be lots better.
