Suspension mods help both bikes of course, but does the R11S need suspension mods MORE THAN a K12RS.............or is the other way around. Curious as to others experience. [/B]
i don't think we're collectively going to agree on this or much of anything for that matter. It really depends on the rider... but if the extra horsies are rendered unusable... i would say the S has the upper hand as slight as it may be.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming,"'WOO HOO! What a ride!"
