    would you think this would be worth it for a beginner?

    If you need a shock it`s a great idea. If you have too much money it`s great. (But if I had too much, it would be spare bikes, not spare parts.) Any time you make the bike better is good for you. But you could take that money and do a few schools.

    What year & bike are we referring too and do you know if it is the standard setting? As a general ruel of thumb the softer setting work much better , much more for a beginner.

    There isn't much to mess with. They get the preload right for the majority and the shock is a bit slow and harsh until break-in, then it loosens up and works good... until you experience Vintage pro's remote reservoir version, or his modified version of the stock internal-reservoir Ohlins.

    If one has the stock Ohlins modified, the is no buying a whole new shock.
