i have the hyperpro rsc, not sure what the ohlins does for more money other than saying "its an ohlins" but i wouldnt pay more for the same device.

I have the hyperpro RSC. It is fine but if I had not gotten this so cheap I would have bought an ohlins.

I'm oldschool and prefer constant to reactive damping. Set it and know exactly what to expect.

Ohlins are prepressurized with nitrogen and have no "deadspot."
Had them on other bikes and loved them.

As for bling- beauty is in the function. My blk hyperpro works and looks good but more racers use Ohlins or Scotts/GPR I'd bet. So racer bling= ohlins.

If someone wants to, I'd trade my Hyperpro for a clean ohlins. Just my 2 cents.

these dampers...

i am all about the best performing RACING damper. but the best bang for my buck works too. surely a fluid spewing damper is unworthy....i thank you all for the feedback!
