    I'd simply call this guy toll-free. He's the man in the USA w/Ohlins & is the largest dealer in the USA. He can answer all questions and support the advice on what will be needed in your application. I also have a Kawasaki ZRX 1100, and he is well known and used by forum members at

    Or purchase them through AF1:

    Hope that helps !

    Plus 2 on Kyle. He's pretty-much Ohlins only now, did an Ohlins spring upgrade in my bud's Tuono Showa and it's awesome.

    I just got a new set for my Mille, as well as a new Penske shock for my Gixxer, from Rick at Cogent Dynamics. Rick is simply the ONLY guy I deal with in suspension, and typically gives better pricing that anyone else...

    Tell him meantrk sent ya. Most popel get a few bucks off that way!

    He's probably looking for something a little closer to home.

    STM Suspension in Fort Collins Colorado -

    Ships internationally and does fantastic suspension work.

    Dave, the owner, has a degree in mechanical engineering with an emphasis in Vehicle Dynamics. He's been working with my race effort for the last several years and always finds a way to make my bike go faster / easier. I know he's been doing some consulting over the phone about spring rates and I'm sure that he can help you out. He used to own a first gen. Mille - so he knows that bike well.
