At OP, this guy's used set of DFVs is probably the best for your money for what i'm assuming is a budget in the $1000-$2000 region. If you're not spending that, save the money, get a sway bar, and wait until you can spend that kind of money.

I can do the off the shelf 10/8k setup. I have an extra pair of Ohlins springs to do a 10/10k setup. I also have 12/10k Swift springs. I'll offer the 10/8 or 10/10 for the same price. Swifts are extra. PM me if interested.

My DFV setup with 10k/10k springs is better, but not that much better.
Does the Koni / GC set up retain stock height? If not, how much does it drop?

They have adjustable perches, but I suggest you give GC a call. They are really good at answering your questions and helping you order the correct springs for what you're doing.

That doesn't matter if the info is useful to others.
