Ohlins rear shock question

I have come across a deal on a Ohlins rear shock for the 919 but its for the lower HO 322 model that doesn't have the remote reservoir. I'm looking to improve my bikes ride and am wondering if this would be a good shock to get.

Depending on the price I would say yes. Almost any aftermarket shock is better than the stock pogo-stick. Besides, you can rebuild an ohlins when the time comes, unlike the stock shock.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

If sprung correctly, and it is, in your estimation, "a deal", the answer is yes.

An Ohlins is a good investment, especially if you are willing to take it off when you decide to sell the bike. Then if you sell your Ohlins separately, you'll get most of your money back out of it.

Those of us who own Ohlins are very pleased with them. The un-Ohlins don't know what they're missing.
