Yep, I'm stuck here in Wy. No bike yet. Kinda hard to ride when my knee swells up like a grapefruit.

Wanna lend me yours for Sears Point next month? :D

That's Ohlins for ya. Sacrifice seal longevity for stiction. At least it's under warranty. Too bad no one in your area knows how to work on Aprilias. :spankie:

Even if only one seal blew,, I'd have him change the other while it's apart. He shouldn't charge more than 1 hour for the second leg. Since he's an Ohlins dealer, I'm sure he knows to use only Ohlins fork oil.

When he puts it together have him move the legs up a line or two. When I rode your bike it pushed pretty hard. Have him set the sag at 36-38 front and 34-35 rear with 8mm added ride height..

Trust me, you'll love it that way. :) Perfect for Sears Point too.

What do you have for gearing again? You might want to shorten it up a bit more.
