I was wandering if there is finally any consensus on the best set up for for Vespa Rally fork.

I have been riding myself a BGM Pro F16 with with a stiff spring 30% and I don't like it. I wanna find better options but I read that if I go for a standard spring the damper will become to soft.

Some people make the same comments about the sip performance shock absorber although SIP recommends the use of a stiffer spring. I'm lost...

Finally, I found this Carbone kit that looks interesting but one reviewer finds it too stiff... Anyone else around here can comment on it?

Been looking at this. Nice to see a damper and spring together. Pricy, though.
