I Ride: 899 Panigale Track
I just installed mine last week and had them out on the track on Sunday (TTX MKII shock has been on since June). The forks are better, particularly the control under hard braking, there's not as much initial dive yet the forks are still plush and offer great feel and traction at lean. I had just ridden at the same track two weeks ago with the stock forks and there was a noticeable lack of bumps with the Ohlins carts, they're just better.
I was thinking about the TTX25 cartridges but after much deliberation I decided not to go for them due to the increased maintenance they require. They're really for Superstock racing and I'm not interested in tearing the forks down twice during the season for maintenance since we run a packed schedule of track days. Plus I would have waited another few weeks for them and wouldn't have got to try them out this year!
Trauma - Please don't pay $3181 for the carts and TTX shock, that's highway robbery, PM me or give me a call!
