Yikes, if Ohlins are junk, how have so many bikes/cars fitted with thier wares won races and championchips?

Agreed, however unless you are building a flat out no-street race machine, Ohlins cant be beat on the street.

That said, I have not ridden any of the new semi-auto systems like Skyjacker or BMW's. They sound promising for street use!

We can agree to differ... ... I am only one voice... and possibly the only one that feels this way.. I agree Ohlins is great stuff...but not the stock version...

How much higher? As in the correct spring rate?

Instead of guessing at it, contact a suspension specialist such as Race Tech and ask them what the spring rate should be based on your weight and preference (progressive or linear). They should be able to tell you.

If you don't have the right spring rate, all of the dial twisting and click adjusting in the world isn't going to do much for you.

Mine is just in comparison to the showas that were on the 848.


Suspensions and the different rake alone have made me much much quicker on my overall performance.

And comfort, which I cant attribute to suspension.
