JarelJ's shop, Ducati Omaha, are certified Ohlins retailers/technicians. You should throw them a bone for all the great info he provided in your thread. I'm sure they'll be competitive with any other Ohlins dealer, but do you think any of them knows a Panigale S suspension setup than someone who's raced them personally?

I don't believe Ohlins makes titanium springs. Renton Coil Springs in Washington manufactures them, and you can get one of those from Lindemann Engineering in California. I had one many years ago on a Penske shock on my SV650 race bike, if I recall it was around $300, so not too terrible. I still remember Jim Lindemann laughing on the phone when I told him I wanted a Ti spring for my SV650!

Ohlins had a bunch of press releases about the availability of titanium springs a couple years ago. My local suspension shop said they were supposedly tricky to set up, and I have yet to see one in action.

Edit: Now that I think about it, they could have simply been advertising that they were putting Ti springs on Ohlins shocks. I can ask them in the morning.

Intermezzo: Koenigsegg is doing carbon fiber springs for their One:1 supercar's Ohlins dampers. That's the future?

I read on the net that they do t perform as well as steal springs. The price is not back considering the amount of Ti, but no one uses them.

I called a few places that can get the spring and all of them said they have stopped selling it only special order. As they look cool and weigh less but function is not there and many people stopped buying them.
