Interesting Side Note, Per the Ohlins Manual :


"...The damping in this EC-Shock absorber is
continuously adjusted according to the riding
style. Depending on which power mode (Full,
Medium, Low) that is selected on the handle
bar, the damping is biased towards comfort
on “Low” and towards traction and handling

on “Full”..... "

Due to age & health concerns I'm going to have to miss this level of suspension development. Don't feel too sorry for me though, my bike has manually adjustable Ohlins front and rear........

If you've ever thought about suspension upgrades, you should go for it! The difference between stock and Ohlins, in terms of control, precision, and just plain comfort is the difference between night & day. An engine upgrade is something you can enjoy when circumstances permit. A suspension upgrade is something you can enjoy whenever your bike is moving.

I wish I had the money for ohlins but I go through bikes left and right and it wouldn't be worth it in the long run?

LOL....

Actually, they are only about $149 More, then the Regular TTX Shock.

That's not bad, considering your getting Electronic Adjustment Valving, an OEM Wire Harness, and an Ohlins ECU.

That's not bad at all. I have the same basic shock on my R6, minus the electronics and with a Ti spring. It's pure sex, and well worth it. It amazes me the people that blow money on full exhaust systems and stuff like that and roll around on stock suspension.

tires>suspension>brakes>everything else
