The Ohlins is good, maybe better, but lacks adjustability, and if mounted inside the fairing, lacks ease of adjustability and more difficult to mount. And the Ohlins is more expensive.lossofsanity said:how is the ohlin style damper i was deciding between the two for my r6?
that sounds like another problem. Not sure the dampner is going to solve that. Maybe your wheel is out of balance.dhill said:Usually when I pick up the front tire, my handle bars start to go back and forth such that I have to let off for fear of eating it. I first thought that this would go away as I get more used to popping wheelies, but the other day when I let go of the handle bars while slowing down (on a very familar and smooth stretch of road and on 2 wheels, just for clarification) to relax my hands for a sec, the handle bars started vibrating quite a bit. I'm sure it wasn't something in the road that caused it.
It still spins when your off the groud. It's the old wheel on the stick theory. You can even steer your bike doing a wheelie by turning it the opposite way that you want the go. The centrifical force will pull the bike over. Now throw something off-balance you get wobble. Like if you put a baseball in the spokes of the wheel on the stick and spun it. It would wobble.dhill said:forgot to mention, front tire's a bit bald, I'm getting that replace this week. I'll let you know after that. I'm wondering though, how would a tire balance problem affect the wobbling when my front tire is off the ground?
