I bought me a pair of Ohlins...now what?
Posted March 16, 2004 - 06:07 PM
I did pre-screen this purchase w/ a talk w/ the owner of Factory Connection here in NH. He did say the Ohlins were popular w/ Vets due to the more supple ride off the top. He said a couple of his Tech's are using them on their CR/CRF's.
He told me $550 was an absolute steel for these forks. And contrary to some guys knowledge, these Cannondale Ohlins are NOT K-Mart Ohlins.
They will need to be re-valved.
The GOLD color just gives me a hard on...I am going to the...uhhhh...bathroom for a couple of minutes (with my Sears catalog and one fork leg)!

I did talk to a fellow TT'er (YZF450 guy) who said the only issue was the triple clamps...???
These forks will NEVER LEAVE ME! They will go from bike to bike.
I kinda fancy getting the internals anadized at Factory Connection. I AM friends w/ the owners brother... but I am aware of the Retail Business and giving deals. Once one guy gets a deal, EVERYONE WANTS A DEAL!
