Update: Ohlins Front and Rear Suspension now Installed
(A while ago I saw a guy post on here about him getting full Ohlins setup, (fork springs and piggy backs) he posted pictures and everyone wanted to know his opinion on them. Then just never replied back to the group ever again. It was 100% the biggest tease of this forum I've encounter yet, with that being said I couldn't take it anymore and bought my own set, so here's my opinion about them so far.... and i actually hope that guy is okay now that I'm thinking about it.)
I got my Ohlins piggy back rear suspension now and they're pretty nice, the adjustable features are really amazing but a bit overwhelming. I was a lot more impressed with the changing the front suspension, I'd recommend everyone change their fork springs right now.
The backs weren't as much of a change honestly also I could of 100% gotten the non piggy back version and been completely happy, oh well though. My expensive mistake is your warning i guess lol.
I eventually put my bike rack (yes a bicycle rack on my motorcycle) on and rode around town and noticed a huge difference so if you're planning on riding 2 up you may want to look into the piggy backs, for me i could of gotten away with the non piggy back version as my bike isn't that heavy. and I weigh 180lbs.
They look good though, now I'm extra afraid of leaving my bike anywhere out of sight, lol. It sounds dumb but i want to cover the gold canisters with stickers or a black vinyl cover. They look to flashy and they're just begging for someone to steal them. (I didn't consider this before buying it but seeing it on the side of my bike just got my mind racing to the worst)
Install took literally 3 minutes, finding a good setting took multiple rides and I'm still not sure i have it right. I'm going to call a Ohlins distro and see if they can help me out, but I've tried every single combination of low spring compression, high rebound, yada, yada, you name it. It all sort of feels the same to me. better than stock in every setting but not as great of a change as the fronts made, that may just be the nature of rear shocks honestly. It's nice being able to change everything up though without any tools though.
The front shocks were an Immense improvement in handling, stopping, every aspect of riding the bike changed and felt so much better. I feel like it has made my motorcycle a lot safer, sometimes things could get pretty scary going through a pretty big pot hole, but now it charges through everything. (not saying I'm making a habit of it but i want to feel in control when it happens)
Hope this helps anyone that's curious if it's worth it or not. if you have any questions let me know. I'll actually reply.
Also i took off my belly fairing I'm not sure if i like it or not what do you think?
