So I thought I would start this poll to help other members out. I wish something like this was available when I was researching Monotubes.

So normal height Monotubes only please provide feedback. The poll is based on the number of clips you added or not when you did your install. Please make comment as to your weight, rear shock setup and your satisfaction of the ride quality.

Weight of rider plus gear on a normal day 175
Quality of ride - slightly better than stock, still has some brake dive.
Rear shocks - Progressive 944's

Wish I had installed 1 clip at a minimum.

1 clip per side here. 250lbs rider . Oem rear shocks set at about 30 lbs.Ride is firm but not harsh. It eliminated oem front end dive by 70%. Happy with set up.

2 clips per side, 280 with gear. JRI's in rear and am very happy with this set up. Night and day difference as to handling. Great improvement.

3 clips for running 2 up at full gross weight (I'd do 2 clips for 1 up)
Weight of rider plus gear on a normal day 320+
Quality of ride - Much firmer than stock, minimal brake dive. Rides a little too firm without a passenger...
Stock Rear shocks with 50 psi
