Re: OHLINES OR OTHER SHOCK?
Why not go back with stock? Less $$$.
I appreciate JNW003's opinion that it wasn't "magical" transformation. I may have to reach out to him about his old ones. 50k less than the rear on mine.
My front shock failed and after looking at the options, I went with back with stock. Less $$.
I bought the '91 with an Ohlins on it, doesn't really feel any different than the stock shock on the '85. As a matter of fact, the adjustment reservoir location caused my pants leg to get caught a couple of times, so it is now under the seat.
