Who converts Ohlins electronic shock to manual??

So I called MotoWheel and they no longer do the conversion and have no referrals. Sucks. I googled Larry Albin and his contact number no longer works haha. Sooooo just wondering if anyone has a person or shop who can convert it?

TIA

Just an FYI to save $ you can do it yourself. I forget who but there is someone who sells the two pieces you need online.

Very simple to do.

Just an FYI though, your ttx will still texhnically be outdated since the release of the ttx-GP.
I believe no matter how they do the mod it makes your shock an MKII, not a -GP. I doubt there's much any difference just making an observation.

Correct. I bought a basically brand new electronic ttx in the hopes to convert for way cheaper than a new manual ttx.

You're right. I just spoke to Lenny and he can do the conversion. It makes the low end stock Ohlins into a Mark II which is the same internal as the GP. He says the only difference is the appearance with a sleeker look on the GP. So all in, I'll be sub $700!! I'll be happy with a new-tech Mark II
