Öhlin Blackline 772’s are AWESOME!!

I’ve always thought the chatter about new rear shocks was hype to justify one’s investment. No more. I put the “affordable” Öhlins on the bike and got them dialed-in to my weight and ride style. Results are outstanding and head and shoulders above the OEM air shocks. Don’t know why I waited so long. Thank you, @Smarty , for making it go from good to great and teaching me how to adjust along the way! Looking forward to getting my bride on the back to show her what a ride should be.

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

I love mine - only problem is they exposed how bad the stock front suspension really is. Time to upgrade the forks for me!

I guess he’s alright. He takes my 20 phone calls a day and baby steps me through my engine build. Oh did I mention I got a great deal on some Ohlins from him too?

Smarty hooked me up with a pair of 772`s, I couldn't be happier with the Mort planted ride, better handling, and the more complient ride on the small barking bumps.

What can you expect to pay for a set of Ohlin 772"s from Smarty?
I have been looking into Super Shox's as one of the rear shocks on my 2016 FLTRU blew out sitting still over the winter.

Competitive with the high-end Super Shox. Call or message ‘em.
