I can't really explain the "before-and-after" as it is really a subtle sort of change that translates into a big difference in the handling feel.
Just a tighter, more solid feel all around....tossing the bike through the turns, it was a lot cleaner feeling.... not as squirmy as before....guess its the flex reduction./
I agree. Also a difference when you pass a speedbump,
My feeling:Big difference? No. Definitely noticeable difference?
Yes. If you get what I mean.
