I was on a group ride this weekend and complaining about being thrown out of the seat on one bumpy road. Another s-triple rider spoke of these plates and how much improved the ride is with them on his bike. Is anyone making the standard Flux plates now? I would love to be able to obtain a pair.

Apex Manufacturing

I decided to go with Apex mfg for the plates and matching dog bone. I'm sure some of these solutions are an improvement over stock but I prefer an engineered matched solution. I haven't ridden the bike with the stock set up, so I won't really be able to give a comparison review. I will post back after a track day this spring though. I bought it as a track bike and I'm getting it set up for this coming year.

Great source of Information here, thanks for all the testing and work done.

Has anyone ever tried to use the OEM plates and just flip them so that the shortest leg (66 mm) ist between the SA (swing arm) and the RSU (rear shock unit) while the long leg 72 mm remaining between SA and DB (dog bone)?

This will drop the given "shock acceleration Lever ratio" from todays 69 mm to 66 mm by almost 5% but will rise the bike approx 10 mm when leaving everything else stock
