100% complete…

Got the rear shock in and swapped the front spacers twice trying to get the sag right. I’m going to ride it a bit and see if the front loosens up a little. Rider sag (not measuring with average for stiction compensation)

is 25mm. A little tight, but a quick spin and it isn’t too harsh. Maybe when it’s warmer and the cartridges break in a bit, the sag will be right.

    The best suspension in the world. I have it on my Ducati & Kawasaki.

      steve, I had an Ohlins rear on my 2005 R1but just re-sprung the front. It handled good, but had a tendency to want to slide the front when I hit mid-corner chatter bumps. Hopefully the front Ohlins cartridges will take care of that on this bike.
