So, as I posted in an earlier thread, I ordered a set of 3-3 Ohlins from Howard @ Motorcycle Metal. All in all my experience was a positive one. I spoke to Howard 2-3 times prior to placing my order. He is almost always reachable on the first call and if not he gets back to you within the hour. That being said, if your looking for a slick, salesman to tell you which shocks to buy, Howard is not your guy. However, if you want someone who is extremely knowledgeable in how suspension works and will help lead you down the road to making the right decision for your needs give Howard a call. He will custom build you a set of premium shocks at an extremely fair price (especially after the forum discount). I received my shocks in three days from placing my order. Great service IMO. After install, setting the sag and one more call to Howard all I can say is WOW! The only problem is that now the front end needs to be upgraded. Lol!
