All I need to hear. I'll never own Ohlin's!
:nono:nono:nono[QUOTE=Polarbear;885465]The folks at Ohlin's USA in NC really gave me no break on rebuild cost:(. 329$, both shocks. The shocks are 16 months old, 12000+ miles and they just said the miles were enough to need rebuild! 20000m being their guideline for such! I must have missed something, thinking they could share some cost:(. Not so. They DID however get them overnight from me, out of pocket big bucks and they DID jump right on them and get them done same day as they arrived(Tuesday), made me happy. Ohlin did save me some bucks shipping back to me overnight, cutting that cost nearly in half for overnight service. This is coast to coast, so big bucks here. 325$ total in shipping two shocks roundtrip. BUT, I got all this done in THREE days, vs two weeks for ground shipping and I have tour planned soon as they get mounted by me. I'm out 660$ total for an unexpected ouch, just as I was about to depart over the road. The extra overnight shipping cost me probably 150$, so there is the difference, FYI. Three days vs. two weeks. SUMMARY: Ohlin's are great products, I have had three sets in 15 years. This is my first FAIL of their shocks, imo. Just too soon! I experience this again and Ohlin loses my business for a LONG time. 2200$ in shocks that cannot hold up are useless to me. The stock BMW shocks did much better and I know the Ohlin product is a major upgrade or supposed to be? Their rebuild policy of every 20000m is a JOKE, period. I am glad they are rebuildable, but come on here. Having to build my shocks twice a year or less in some cases, is a PURE joke for a shock costing all these bucks. I'm just in the wrong business, as this overseas stuff is killing me in this case. I LIKE the product, bought it three times. but will hold my ground from now on. Randy[/QUOTE]
