Hey Eric, i think the penske would be easier out of the box to set up by yourself but I think between the 2 you are gonna get about the same performance. I went with ohlins triple but only really because Indysuperbike helps me get it set-up and dialled in and they can help me with any issues and can service it. Otherwise I would have went with the penske which is supposed to be a little more user friendly i guess. But either one performance wise will get er done. Oh and the Ohlins is prettier...lol

I've always run Ohlins, but wouldn't hesitate to go with Penske. Can't go wrong with either one, IMO. Penske is custom-made for you. If you go Ohlins, don't just get it from a Parts Unlimited catalog order dealer. Get it from someone knowledgeable that works with suspension, who will re-spring it and do the initial setup for you. Otherwise, I think you're better off with the Penske.

I got the Ohlins on mine. It's sprung alittle stiff for the street but it rails awsome.

:thumbsup: +1 to that. I got mine through indysuperbike and they got it set-up to my weight with the proper spring rate

Well I've made my decision.
If I pull the trigger I'll be getting the penske.
Thanks for all the input
