Thumbs up Ohlins Suspension service and respring/geometry

Thanks a bunch for the AWESOME suspension work. Bike feels way more stable through the corner and over bumps. The proper spring rate made the bike feel super light (made me feel light too). Was able to carry way more speed without putting in any effort. Bike tips in quick and sticks well.
Feels really well balanced. No more pogo and bottoming out. Even under heavy front braking, the bike feels stable unlike before where it felt like i had a flat tire.
The rear does not squat like before under heavy acceleration out the corner.

Thanks for the quick service too.

There should be an automated function on here that whenever someone mentions having their suspension set-up, I post that having your suspension set by someone who knows what theyre doing (Patrick/Motorcycles Unlimited) IS THE BEST DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR THING YOU CAN DO TO YOUR MOTORCYCLE! THIS SHOULD BE REQUISITE FOR ALL RIDERS!

Thankyouhaveaniceday.

Most definitely.. If you are light weight and the springs are rated for your weight from factory then atleast a basic suspension adjustment should be done.. in my case i am 250 lbs suited which is way past OEM sportbike range.

They tuned my suspension and it was an ENTIRELY different bike. I definitely recommend them to anyone. My front end would dive when shifting gears (not using my quick shifter) and had a good amount of head shake when hard braking. After I left the shop it felt solid. Took it out to the forest and had a blast.
