    Exclamation Awaiting with great anticipation.....

    Ohlins are being installed on my R12GS as we speak! I've been okay with the stock shocks, but at 66,000 miles the rear shock is leaking, so I decided to pull the trigger and replace both. Surprisingly, the price difference between the Ohlins and a new set of stock shocks is less than 10 percent! So getting the Ohlins is a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned.

    Like I said..... Awaiting with great anticipation!

    Keep those old ones

    Those are great premium shocks and if they blow a seal and start leaking the dealer should be able to rebuild them. Just save those old shocks as a spare if you need them rebuilt.

    Ohlins

    Congratulations mistercindy! Going from worn out (66k) stockers to Ohlins will be dramatic to say the least. I ordered a set on Thursday from Dan Kyle Racing for my 05 R1200ST. He's having a group buy sale at the moment with 24% off list. Mine were $1,298 with shipping.

    Ride Safe,
    Mike
