Didn't see the price tag. I would have considered it at $900 or so but I'll either go ohlins or race techs.

Don't get me wrong, I do all the work on my bikes as well, but what does it cost to have someone swap the shock?

For someone who spends $700 on suspension components for a bike like this? I maintain that if you can afford the Ohlins for a Grom of all things, you can probably afford to have someone else put it on and not need a 17mm wrench.

Come to think of it, nearly every single oil drain plug I've removed is a 17mm...

Oil drain plugs can come off with a socket. The rear shock requires a wrench.
