??? I have 4 adjustments on my Ohlins. I had 3 on the stock shocks. The stock wouldn't let me change the damping on the front, otherwise the controls were pretty much the same. I had the stock shocks dialed in pretty well, but there was still a certain harshness that went away with after market shocks.
That said, I'm looking forward to Dynamic ESA on the new bike. Yeah, I'm a little bit concerned about shock/damper longevity. But not concerned enough to skip the Dynamic ESA package on the new bike.
