My shock is on the way and will install it when it arrives. What can I expect in terms of ride when it's on? Do I need to do anything with the fronts? Bike is a road/track machine. Bring on the opinions!

Its going to be stiff intitally. And yes you will have to adjust the front. Take it to a suspension expert and get it dialed in for you.

As bkkninja said right out of the box it is going to feel better than your stock shock even if it is dialed in.
The way the shock stays stiff on the power yet takes bumps is just amazing, i wont own a bike without an ohlins shock.
Going to try out the TTX on my 1098 and that unit is supposed to be even better than the stuff already made.

BUT DO GET EVERYTHING DIALED IN BEFORE GOING ALL CRAZY.

just make sure to measure your ride height of the bike before install in case the shock is not the same length out of the box.

I swapped out springs in the forks to match my weight. Left valving stock, and feels great at speed at the track. I've got it set up stiff though so not ideal on the ol commute.
