Ordered Ohlins

Spoke with Howard at Motorcycle Metal last week. His shop started building my Ohlins 3-4 series shocks on Friday and should be here this week. He said I'll want to kick my own ass for not changing the shocks before my Alaska trip. I'm looking forward to the new feel.

I just ordered my 3-4s yesterday. That and some monotubes for the front.

One last winter project. C'mon spring.

Look forward to your impression of the Ohlins. I found a screaming deal on a set of 440's, so that's what I'll be running for now. Anything will be better than the factory "shocks". Still may try to budget in a set of Ohlins in the future. Howard is a very interesting dude to talk to.

I put a set of Ohlin 3-3's on last year and then some monotubes up front this past week. What a sweet ride now! Back is good, no front end dive up front and the bike tracks sweet!

Why did you go with the 3-4 instead of the 3-3 ? The 3-4 are longer than the stock 13 " shocks and dont have any additional travel based on what Howards site says. So they will raise your bike and change the rake.
