Not sure. Someone may know. Otherwise lookup any ohlins topics in suspension section. Scroll through and find smarty. Just pm him.

Hell no, like you i would be angry as well, and also beating myself up, especially for that kind of $$$$

You have every right to inform others, and share your experience, that is exactly why forums exist, and if people think your a noob for that, screw em.

They did recommend a place for me to buy their shocks from, and that person was Carol.


Interesting - I too buy from Smarty , waiting on the new front cartridges to be released

I second this recommendation to contact Carol.

I met Carol aka Smarty at the Cherokee Sharkweek. Ohlins had a team at Sharkweek installing shocks on Roadglides. I talked with them about the choices and watched them do installs. When it came time to buy I knew I wanted the 772 blacklines. Carol took the time (while on a motorcycle trip with friends) to talk with me about which shock and length would best meet my needs. After the order, the shocks were drop shipped from Ohlins USA. Then Carol talked with me on the phone about the install.
