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.

Jayman,
I am looking at upgrading too.
I have had great experiences with Ohlins, and HiVel LOVES his.

Let me know if you can find a price less than USD $850.

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.

I KNOW I can get a better price than a grand.

[Just don't tell Premier] ;D

Hey guys, Steve at Annitori Distributing (ZardUSA) also is the US Hyperpro distributor. I have a top of the line Hyperpro rear shock on order, but it is a brand new unit. I'd be willing to bet Steve might be able to get a Triumphrat/Thespeedtriple group buy going...

The shock has high/low speed dampening adjustment, remote preload, etc etc, everything the top of the line ohlins or penske has. Plus, it is all black anodized with a purple spring.

Kuhlka,
What is the price for the Hyperpro stuff - front and rear (separate prices)?

I am working on a group buy for an Ohlins rear (see my other suspension thread). How many are interested in one for USD $825-$850? Spring and valving perset for your weight by and expert.

That sounds like a deal, but which model Ohlins is that? The Hyperpro I haven't heard back from Steve on, so I might be interested if he doesn't have an answer for me monday. I ordered it back when I ordered my Zard.

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.

Ohlins part number TR502
Type - S46HR1C1LB

They don't have a listing for your year model, is there a difference?
the 2003 Daytona uses type S46HR1C1LS ; part number TR702

A lighter spring with more preload can work for what you want.

My suspension should be identical to an 02-06 daytona, probably the same rear end as the 1050. I wouldn't be suprised if the 97-06 daytonas are all the same part number.

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.
