Ohlins fronts?!!! Those are big $$$
I thought of upgrading mine to Ohlins as well when I encounter the dreadful "stiction" our standard ATs are known for.
Question: just how much better are the Ohlins compared to other inexpensive upgrades (i.e. Racetech, Nitron TVT Cartridge, KYB SSS, or even DIY upgrades like swapping to ATAS forks+internals)?
I think the Ohlins drop in cartridges are far superior. First thing I would do on a road race bike was send them off and have stock internals ripped out and Ohlins, K-tech or JRi added to the stock forks. I originally ordered the complete Ohlins forks and waited 7 weeks and I still had 3 more people in front of me waiting. I gave up and just told Cogent to order up the 30 mil cartridges with correct springs and proceed. Well the springs for my size were in sweden so that took another 5 weeks. Wish I had just ordered the cartridges and springs when I ordered the rear shock. Knowing what I know now my forks were not affected by the premature wear at least to date at 4056 miles.
