    Hello everyone,
    I tried digging into the forum before posting, yet I could use a little more feedback.
    I have a 2003 Rosso Corsa - which I maintain a twisted love/hare relationship with.
    My challenge is that my ass is killing me. The Ohlins is just darn stiff. Overall, I don't have a dislike for the suspension while I'm storming through the twisties, yet I do want to save my butt.
    I've read here that adjusting the suspension would cost $. Are we talking $ or $$$$? And why is the Ohlins on this particular bake so challenging?
    Thanks in advance.

    John, it's a well known fact that the '02~03 V11S Ohlins units were shared with the much lighter Aprilias. Often sprung and valved completely incorrectly. Cost on fixing it is painfully expensive because of the name. You can often replace the shock with something custom made and just as nice for less than the cost of making the Ohlins correct. Last I had one redone, cost was near $900 and that was 10+ years ago. I stopped going this route. That said, if you want a price to do so, write me direct email; Info @ GuzziTech.com

    Thanks very much Todd.
    There is a local company here in Atlanta that has done a great job maintaining my 97 1100 Sporti and its WP Suspension.
    If I cant get what I can from the local folks, I will certainly reach out.
    Thanks again.

    Is Kent @ GMD still around and kicking? It still looks like on the web.
