Question to Öhlins specialists

As I will have the bike stripped pretty naked this winter due to my various winter projects I thought that why not throw in a set of Öhlins shocks while at it.

Is there any difference in pre-facelift models as far as Öhlins shocks are concerned? I have attached picture from their catalog. Does this look like proper setup for an 05 LT?

I also remember reading a post that handled this subject quite recently but could not find, sorry.

Ari looking at a different site there seems to other model numbers for your 05. Check this site out

119° 01’ 21.64 W

Why coast through Life when you can Corner it.

I believe starting in 05 the rear came with a progressive spring rate. The acronym was WAD if I recall correctly. Not sure if Öhlins has a progressive spring or not. I think that they are all the same dimensionally.
