I also contacted TPM directly to find out if they would have an Ohlins rep there that day which they said there wouldn't be but the owner could help me get a baseline set up fo about $40. Only thing is, that's exactly what we tried to do yesterday but couldn't do anything due to how stuff the factory springs are compared with my weight. So I dunno...

I'll see if I can contact MrBrettBaker as well, it'd be nice to have somebody show me around a bit, especially considering this will be my first trackday on the Pani and I'm a novice at that.
If no one is going to be there your best bet may be to go right to Ohlins directly they are in NC also..

Figured I'd update this thread. Getting the springs out is pretty straight forward. Nothing to worry about with the electronics. I just backed off all the preload and compression/rebound just like one would in a manual fork. Problem is putting them back together. The damping rod doesn't come out nearly as far as the xx98 series bikes and doesn't have a channel in the rod to hold it in place after you compress the spring. So trying to compress the spring let's the rod slip right back into the abyss. Ordered a pull rod from ohlins but now sure that's going to solve my problem. May have to remove the forks and take a trip to the dealer.

What did you end up having to do?
