The Ohlins works well, my stocker was completely sacked out so I cant tell an accurate compro. I only have the XR forks ( 2 sets,) not a XR shock, I am looking at some other ohlins & WP that I have for out back. seems I have 5 sets of forks in the garage, I must have some kind of woody for 'em, USD ohlins, showa, 2 XR's, set of marzocchi, worse habits to have I guess.
If I can get one of the others to fit, the stock ohlins will go on the block. Modrover I will be riding it near you this summer ( 2x monthly trips to oregon coast for business) so if you want to try it to see how it rides, no worries;
