Always thought my modded 07 450 rear was pretty well set up & hard to better, but had a fantasy about going golden. Well I am here to tell you my brothers & sisters they are the gold medal deal. I got it set up for my weight & riding style, (as it came in the box)bolted it up, which was a pleasure in it self, in which thinking back now should have given me an insight to what I was about to experience, anywho, took it out on a 2 day ride, equipt with adjustment tools, well it s just like Jen A, got better with time, will not be touching a single thing, love that TTX, ROOSTA out.

The stock 2006 YZ450/250 shock sells for about $100.00 usd used, and works fantastic.

I still feel stupid for not spending a thousand dollars on a rear shock. 

 

Guess I don't get to eat lunch with the cool kids.

Think some of you guys are missing something here.
Ohlins are used a lot on street bikes.
Some of it has to do with performance coming out of corners.
Street bikes usually perform better than other bikes without Ohlins.
It's that simple.
See most people who ride street bikes with Ohlins have less cash in their wallets to drag around and that quickly equates to more performance.

There is not one rider, professional or private, that I have ever seen place in the top 10 in a D37 race, that uses Ohlin products, ACCEPT for the steering damper.

There is nothing better than KYB or Showa, especially A-kit versions. 

 

Ohlins are like KTM's: for people who are attracted to things that are marketed as being 'advanced', and are made to look that way, but really aren't.

Yes, all Scotts steering dampers are made by Ohlin.

I personally know Ohlin. He's a Vegetarian, and kind of a freak.
