Has anyone installed an Ohlins or Penske rear shock? What are your impressions/opinions? I was thinking about going Ohlins myself when the cash flow permits.
HiVel has a direct connection to the US distributor for Ohlins - and he sets up the spring and valving for your weight. HiVel has been very impressed. I may be able to work out a GROUPBUY.KarmaPunk said:GROUP BY!!!
Rather than compromise on spring rates, why not order a slightly shorter than stock shock. All Penskes are custom made (and have ride-height adjustments), so they could certainly arrange that for you. I have a Penske 8983 and I'm very happy with it.kuhlka said:I'd like to lower the rear of my bike about an inch so I'd prefer an ohlins that'll allow me to do that without cranking down preload too much.
