Re: Looking for best deal on Ohlins Suspension

You won't be able to get 25mm kits. They haven't been making them for well over a year. Last year, graves was the only place around who had 25mm kits in inventory as part of their works program for the forks.

I can surely get you equipped with what you need. Regarding who in your area is a good place to have it installed I can't comment on tho.

I did notice Dan Kyle still had a 25 mm kit they are the only place that I have found that has them. Any thoughts as to which one is the way to go with it seems like 25 the mm is double in price but is it that much better? Any input would be much apperiated. Thanks

As far as price goes, HardRacing is usually the cheapest. They had an Ohlins shock for my 05 for like $850 brand new. Plus they're a certified dealer so they can set it up and everything.

Re: Looking for best deal on Ohlins Suspension

You're waisting your time if you think you can beat Ant's price on the shock or the cartridge kit.

He priced me out an unbeatable number. Even went to a Ohlins guy at a local shop here and he said he'd match it just to make the sale... but I'm going to go with Chief.

Chief... I've been MIA cause of work and travel... sh1t last time we talked, I was in the airport, lol. I'll call you this week to finalize my suspension.

There was a used set of 30mm carts for sale on here a few days ago for $975. I'd start with that.

I know a few places to get great deals on ohlins.....ant, velocity calibrations which is local to me, passion motorsports. I'm sure all of them are pretty close in the pricing.
