Ok so I go those installed and they are awesome.
I converted my S model into R at half the price.
I also got a rear shock from another company.
But those cartridges make a world of difference, there is no more diving. Everything is very composed.

Other than a hitch in the original shipping with an incorrect part, this would have been 5 stars. The fork kit transforms the 790 S into a real off road rig. Much better on road as well. The washboard hammering goes away, and the big whoops or surprise deep holes from where Bubba stuck his pickup are no longer "oh ****" moments. Be forewarned you'll need a 7mm allen wrench to do the install. 450cc of 5w Yamalube worked well in my set up.

Wow! Night and day difference for sure. Me being 220Lbs, the stock forks designed for a 165lb rider were way too squishy for me. They would dive in cornering and not have enough travel range for off road. Problem solved and made the bike feel so much better with adjustability now. Install was fairly easy and Andreani will answer any question you throw at them. Now I have to do the rear shock.
