I had one installed in my VF1000R last year. For an 'ordinary' road rider I think they're fine and a good budget option. I do have Ohlins as OEM on some of my bikes and whilst they are good, I'm not sure that they're eight times better than the YSS for the price. (money sound about right - mine was £220 plus VAT.)... there is a few good reviews of the Yss shock at around £280. Thoughts?
