I have no regrets spending the money on a new unit, the improvement was well worth the expense. Anyone who is having issues and is comfortable with spending the money to do so should not hesitate.I do have a spring compressor and I could take the OEM unit apart. That's still more of a pain than just trashing the OEM and bolting in a MUCH better unit. If I was needing to save a few bucks I can see it, I'm happy I don't have to (Thank You again Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station).
My reluctance stemmed more from how offensive the concept was to me that I needed (not wanted) to upgrade the suspension on a brand new motorcycle because the stock unit was so inadequate, particularly in contrast to how well made I think the rest of the bike is. This isn't my first bike and I've never been that fussy about suspension, but I've never before experienced a suspension so limited that it rendered the bike unusable if I made a simple modification by changing the seat. With the stock seat installed it was borderline but liveable, but when I switched to a LaRosa seat, which lets me sit slightly further back, it was bottoming out constantly. So I considered all options except for any like the Fox that involve additional purchase from Triumph. They should not be rewarded for this.
