Ohlins front suspension recomendation

Debating whether dropping the Ohlins Nix 30mm cartridge kit or the TTX cartridge kit into my 2015 1299. Any opinions on which riders like better. Depending on cost maybe even the full ohlins road and track nix front forks. But that would really determine on the Nix 30mm cartridge kit or TTX cartridge opinions

R&T Forks $2400 DIY installation - $1400 resell value = $1000 actual cost

Nix 30 kits cost $1200 + $200 labor, can't resell since you are still left with one set

R&T will perform marginally better because the outer tube is flex tuned and stanchion coating is better, slightly heavier.

TTX is high maintenance, service 5k mi intervals

Unless you're at a minimum racing at a level where you're competing for an expert-class club racing championship, you'll get no benefit from the TTX fork kit, and as mentioned above the maintenance is more intensive. I've had customers get the TTX kit anyway, just because it's "better", but I always recommend the NIX30 for most people.

Great point brought up about resale value! Plus one for the R&T, bling factor is worth it alone. Scour the internet for a set used, you might find one at the price of the NIX cartridge kit.
