Íhlins rear suspension questions

I need the track experts opinions on the best rear shock to purchase from Íhlins... Does anyone know the best place to purchase? I'm running a custom 20 mm setup in the front and I want a quality rear shock.

I'm looking at the new TTX36. Does anyone have reviews/opinions?

Thanks!

Re: Íhlins rear suspension questions

Zyre,

THanks for the reply post. I am looking at the following TTX36 Ohlins rear for my project bike. 1200 bucks-- Is this a decent price?? NXSperformanceparts switches out the rear shock according to rider weight, etc. I've got a 2006 R6, but will the 2008 model shock fit? I dont think there are any major differences in the frame/swingarm mounting points.

Thanks!

best place to get the ttx shock for the 2006-2007 r6 is graves. they have them on sale for $1000.00 plus shipping. best price i've seen on this shock anywhere!! or if you'r looking for a standard ohlins shock, buy mine, and i'll buy the ttx then.

The best prices you will probably ever find will be from here.

Give Ron a call and see what he can do for you.

I am pretty sure he can beat Dan Kyles prices.
