    Installed those Race tech .90Kg springs and that 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 rear shock. And new fork oil. Did it the hard(headed) way by watching a few youtube videos and diving in. Taking it apart...

    I think it was all about having the front wheel off the ground when I put the caps on. If I could find a way to keep that extra air all the time it would swallow all the stutter bumps and road...
