Ohlins Rebuild

As I was having my tub buiild by DMC, the Ohlins on my GSA were due (31k miles) for a rebuild. As part of the rebuild, I went up 10% on the fronts and 30% on the rear spring rate.
When I bought the shocks, I was tippin' 180lbs now 165lbs... so.. with the additional spring rate and droppin' some un-needed pudge, I hope the shocks hold up.

I'm putting her through paces right now on a shakedown prior to my Deadhorse run this summer. If it fails, it should do it sooner than later...
