New or used? For new, that's good. For used, it's a tad on the high side.

Depending on your budget and what you're using the bike for, the KA346 2-way adjustable is an excellent shock too. I have used both of them, and they are both quality shocks. The low and highspeed compression adjustment, and hydraulic preload are really the only differences which isn't really a big deal.

This is a pic of the 2-way.

All right,I've got a question.Got my shock today and when I opened the box and pulled the shock out it was covered in oil.Is this normal or do you think it's got a leak?I wouldn't think they would do that but.......

Send a message via AIM to Mick1313
its probly just the lube from assembly or when they packed it. It should be anything out of the ordinary unless its coming from the shock itself

Hmm.. that is strange. I've owned numerous Ohlins shocks including the KA345 and KA346 and they do not come covered in oil. You might want to check the seal, because I don't think it's supposed to be that way. If it's new, they should replace it for you free of charge. If not, you'll have to get her rebuilt.
