Well I just wanted t say Thanks to Howard of Motorcycle Metal, for the New Ohlins I purchased from him.
Howard was great to talk with on the phone and was very informative when it comes to Motorcycle Suspensions.
I ordered His Ohlins #6 with Remote Reservoir for the rear and His Ohlins FKC 101 for the front.
Everything came very quickly, was wrapped up extremely well and I can say they look like Jewels.
I am looking forward to completing the install.
Howard told me to give him a call if I run into any problems.
That's great Customer Service, in My Book.
Unfortunately, I have been busy with Family and Work and haven't had the time to do the install.
I should be completing all My Winter Mods at the end of February since I took the time off from work to do so.
I will post pics soon and once I take a ride with the New Suspension I will report back.
If your in the Market for a New Suspension don't hesitate to give Howard a call.
He's very informative and gives Our Forum Members a TERRIFIC Discount.

dozer, I spoke with Howard and he sent me all the tools as well as the instructions to complete the install as I do all the work on my bike myself.
He told me not to hesitate to call him if I run into any problems.
As soon as I get the time to complete the install I'll let everyone know how it went.
If I remember I'll also take some photos.

Howard set me up 50,000 miles ago with same equipment you just got and I still love it! I also got a new 17 a few months ago and though new suspension is definitely better than old stock suspension, it does not compare to Howard's Ohlin setup! Enjoy

I recently put my order in on the same Ohlin #6 shocks from Howard. I am anxiously waiting for then to arrive so I get them on my bike and go for a ride. Is there anything special I need to know about the installation process?

Smokey, the only problem i had was mounting the resevoir. I have saddlebag guards on so I had to remove the antenna mount and I wire tied the resevoirs behind the mounting bracket. When you recieve your #6's from Howard he will include all the instructions and materials needed to complete the install.
