well i meant if anyone has actually installed such a thing (the cost is high at ~1000euros). the tractive suspension looks like a well built part,however i 've never heard the brand before and i hesitate to spent such an amount of money.

Tractive Suspension was set up by all ex-WP tech guys after KTM bought WP and moved production from Holland to Austria.
They have a huge amount of technical experience and manufacture all the shocks and cartridge fork kits for Touratech Germany.
Check out their video

I replace my suspension with a Hyperpro lowering shock and progressive fork springs. It lowered the front and back 2.5” and I love it. I can flat foot the bike now and it has 50 settings for adjustment. I’ve taken a passenger for a four hour ride and the combined weight was 400lbs and the GS took it like a champ no problem.

kloseau - Tell me about your setup? 6ft here and can almost flat foot, but been considering a shock purchase. Love to hear more about yours!
