Even better is to have a true professional change it out for you and if possible have a professional adjust the settings to your weight. I'm not talking your so called "professional" at the dealership. I mean a true professional. Anyhow hope this helps.
i wish they were cheaper. cuz even if they didn't do anything i'd want one. it's one of the best looking pieces of gear on a bike. looks so badass.

I really think Ohlins is a really good brand. I would love to have it on the bike but it's way out of my price range. Maybe the springs wouldn't be too bad. I like how you say, "not your so called 'professional'". I know a few people that work at some of the dealerships around here that I wouldn't call professionals.
