What is better a piston or a bladder in the reservoir?? I was told a bladder is more supple in the small bumps.

Everybody has their own opinion on this. Some tuners will tell you you need a bladder . Usually because the don't have the correct wp servicing tools.

I have tested WP shocks with both, and i wouldnt say it makes a real difference to a average rider.

many top quality shocks like penske and ohlins use pistons-no one has ever to my knowledge said to fit bladders-only on ktms.

There is no diference in physics.. Did I post the fluid densisty thing on here that justfies the diference most people feel as they ruin their longterm shock performance....
