If you have that kind of cash to "waste" then go right ahead..

Waste ? If it greatly improved handling of bike ( which i don't know and why I'm asking ) i don't think of it as a waste IMO . Think about all the money people spend on aesthetic mods , which is fine too .

Well you clearly don't know the price difference between these from ˘hlins and other brands.. Hence my comment. Do some research on the matter at least if you're interested in changing them.

I'm not buying it. The OEM spring is a better design.

I've looked into Ohlins and other brands and the general consensus is that Gas based springs almost always underperform the normal spring springs, they leak and they really dont give overall lasting performance.

You can but them if you want to, but to be honest I think you'd be wasting money. There are better brands that offer a more proven design for half the price.
