Want a set, wondering if they are self adjusting in Dyna mode on street to conditions and speed? And wondering if spring pre lode is automatic front and rear from handlebar or rear only. The front looks manual no hydraulic spring.

Hey Monty, These shock absorbers are adjusted by the stock D-ESA system on the motorcycle. Just like the stock shocks, the settings are constantly changed based on speed, ground conditions, and control inputs. Only the rear shock pre-load is electronically adjusted from the handlebar just like the stock system. These shocks are a plug and play solution with the D-ESA system on the R1200GS-W that keep all the same functionality with vastly improved performance and durability.

What is the weight comparison to OEM. I am looking to reduce weight on my 2014 1200GSW and increase adjustability. Is there any weight savings over stock?
