Any number of companies can adapt them to include cartidges so you get full adjustability. I wouldnt have thought Ohlins was worth the cash on a 125 unless theyre silly cheap. Saying that, im going to fit some TiN Showas onto mine, but only cos i got them cheap so it will be same price as getting the stock ones adapted. Will still be single caliper also, twin disc def not needed and will just be added weight!

From what ive seen, if you want to splash the cash new, then Marzocchi have bought out some fully adjustable ones for the new shape RS. I believe Ohlins do some too but i havent seen them and wouldnt like to imagine the price. You might be able to find the new Marzocchis on Italian Ebay IIRC

maxton in the u.k. do a cartridge kit for 395, plus fitting. rebound and preload adjustment in both legs, very high quality finish to the cartridge.

seriously considering this option..........

Heres the Maxton version, forks and rear shock jus under 1200 but well worth it!
