The handling on my '99 R1100R (92k miles) has gotten awful enough for me to actually cough up the money for some aftermarket shocks.
After reading hundreds of topics on the subject here and elsewhere, I've decided on Ohlins.
There is one front and one rear shock model available for my bike. One thing I'm not exactly clear on is when ordering a set of shocks, what options do you need to specify. Other than adjusting the shocks' settings, do I need to specify a certain spring or anything else?
My weight is around 220, which puts me right around the point where there might be a stiffer spring might be used or something like that. And I have big aluminum panniers for touring, although I live in NY and do a lot of city driving.
I'm set on buying the ohlins, I just want to make sure I order correctly. Any help would be appreciated... thanks
