I was wondering the same thing. Not a function test as such but I felt the improvement over stock right away when fitted and looking at my tyre wear I know its pretty good. If it wasn't functioning the tyre wear would be shit and all but a noob rider would feel the performance drop off it it stopped functioning IMO.

Still, a function test would be nice. It talks to the damper ECU and there is a fault light for the damper on the dash. Does the shock trigger the fault light if its stuffed? I'm guessing not but it would be nice.

That brings up another question. If the damper fault light comes on (as we all know that's not entirely uncommon) does the shock still function? Any insight on this LDH?

Unfortunately I simply do not know. I've sold dozens of NON-EC Ohlins shocks for Gen4 & 5 ZX-10R's and maybe 4 of the Mechatronic units since. Most of my clientele are racers or trackday whores and the electronic controlled shocks are what they are trying to get away from not migrate towards so I just don't have the hands-on experience to provide you with a real world answer.

No worries, thanks for the reply anyway. Like I said, it feels right on the road and the tyre wear is good so I'm happy.
