Gen4: Ohlins Electronically Controlled Shock

Just want to find out if anyone is using one of these Electronically controlled shocks??

I am upgrading the suspension on my Race bike and was thinking of going for the Ohlins Electronic shock instead of the normal Ohlins TTX.

Price wise -about $100 differance.

I will also be getting the Attack Suspension Linkage Kit.

Any thoughts??

I guess if the Ducati Panigale can use it, why not Kawi? I say go for it.
Worse case scenario is just having to leave the damping in one position.

Is this tuned by your speed?

I emailed ohlins several times about the installation of the unit and they just keep on giving me the run around. I can see how hard it is to answer a few simple questions...
I guess they don't give a shit weather you buy it or not...

Thats a good question - like if any parts got damaged, can they be bought seperatly or not . . . .

I tested one of these shock about a month ago on my 10R at Thunderhill and really liked it. It has a small harness and mini ECU that plugs into the stock wire harness to take the real time info and convert it to data to tune the shock.

Ohlins hasn't had the press release yet, so I can't go into details other than to say it's badass and I really liked it.
