KLRinDixie, if you're ever in the Asheville, NC, area, I commend to you Cogent Suspensions.
I spent a couple of days there last year as my riding partners had their KLR suspensions optimized. Most impressive technical competence and custom suspension tuning advice, IMHO.
And . . . I got to watch a shock absorber dynamometer in action! (Digital records of each Cogent shock's performance data are maintained for analysis and rebuild baseline information.)
Customer-centered, I believe Cogent Suspensions would give you straight and valid recommendations from which to choose, consistent with your purpose, riding style and environment.
