That looks awesome. I am literally on hold with DHL trying to figure out where my KWs are.

What info did you give installer to get the ride height at the level you're at (inches/cm from center of wheel or just wing it)? Also, when you say stock rebound and compression, do you mean the suggested values (clicks) from the documentation with the KWs (i.e., middle of the range)?

Finally, how's ride comfort? Do you notice a difference (good/bad)? Thanks - I have to live vicariously through others for a while longer.

yep by stock i meant the suggested settings in the manual.

right now its at 8 clicks in front and 6 clicks in rear for rebound. and compression is .75 of a turn for front and back.

the handling is amazing and ride is very firm and not that harsh. but still... i feel it is a little too harsh for the city roads so im gonna do what another member did (sparkplug) and have it all at one setting softer from recommended. so 9 / 7 clicks for rebound, and 1 turn for compression.

For the ride height, i wanted a certain height (22 inches from fender to bottom of wheel edge) and Matt my installer, who is another member on the boards, guesstimated from his many install experiences and fine tuned the height afterwards when we put everything back.
