ohlins costomer service sucks, took them 10 days to get back to me on why my steering damper wasnt installing properly.tag r 1 said:Go with Ohlins, part availability and service knowledge on your side is probably better than Penske which is an American brand. Buy a used one and send it to the guys that have flooded the BSB grid, K-Tech. If ithey are good enough to win there why not use them.
Larry, my understanding is that Penske has more adjustments on the rear shock (3 total). Please confirm this, and if that's the case the Penske is the way to go.....:ridingEyespy said:FWIW, here in the States, (aside from the fact that the Penske is at least as good as the Ohlins shock), Penske is known for better customer service and parts availability than Ohlins.
I wish I was fast.:cryinDaekwan said:At our last trackday at Summit Point, WV. The Expert class was turning 1:20's, an retired AMA pro put his stock R1 out on the track just to see what he could do. And turned a 1:16 on a completely stock bike, with Supercorsa's being the only modification.
The Penske 8987 has ride height, rebound damping, compression damping, and high speed compression damping adjustability. The other Penske shock lack the high speed compression damping adjustability.mkinla said:Larry, my understanding is that Penske has more adjustments on the rear shock (3 total).
