$400 and took about 20 minutes to install, 10 of which was looking for the right tools. It does require a 17 mm wrench so I had to improvise.

Nope, and I can count with 1 finger the number of times I have needed a 17 mm wrench. Not sure how an ohlins rear shock is compared to a wrench. I have ohlins forks in my garage too.

I have bigger as well but 17 doesn't usually come in kits and so when I come to a spot where I really need one then I will buy one. That's how tool acquisition works right?

I'd rather have a turbo than a super charger. What are they even going to run the super charger off of?

If you can afford Ohlins suspension components you can afford to pay someone who has a 17mm wrench to install it for you.

Does anyone know at the top of his or her head who has Groms in stock? Stubbs never called me back with a stock update or they just never got any more in stock.

Ive spent more on suspension on my other bikes than what my grom costs me. I have a 17mm and wouldn't pay someone to swap my suspension, unlesd it's internal work.
