On a previous thread I mentioned that I had an Ohlin rear shock on my R1. Tee tee thought that the money would have been better spent on the front end. Well the forks are off and going to the shop tomorrow for new springs and valves. I think this mod will make my bike a dream to ride and can hardly wait to get back on the road. I think money spent on handling is better spent money than on sheer power. Anyways thanks for the advice and I will let you know how it works out.
