2022 Interceptor.
I'm unable to find an US supplier and tired of having to spend shipping expense from overseas.

They don't appear to have the complete YSS front fork upgrade kit. :(

Their website leaves a lot to be desired, I'd send them a message or give them a call.

Happy to help!

Klaus made a pair of shocks for me in 2019, long before anyone else was making anything for the 650's. They are still working great.

In my initial email, I asked if they had it in stock. They replied they did. Then when I made the order, I left message "only if in stock". They replied "Sorry it isn't currently in stock. 2-3 week wait". Going to be awhile before weather is decent, so I told them to go ahead and order. frikkin salesman.  LOL

Seems basic communication skills are at an all time low, everywhere.

Go to an Indian or Thai supplier like I did, great communication and best price , super fast delivery. Yes, I know Im in Canada but it’s close.
Plus FOR SURE - drill the extra holes in the damper rod like you can find on YouTube, I did it both ways and it’s well worth the extra effort. 4 -10mm holes with 15W shock oil. Then adjust your front rear sag, check tire pressure and find your favourite bit of twisty rough road. Big time good stuff

Thanks for advice on drilling. I did find out that I'm not going to pay anymore shipping expense than what it wouldve cost if I had ordered from YSS factory. The only twisty road I have here in central Illinois is the Interstate on/off ramps.   :(  But I do have a hellva lot of tarstrips and pot holes that throw you around.  :D
