Is anyone else on the forum unhappy about the performance of the Ohlins suspension, more specifically the forks, on their S4RS ?
I find the forks very lacking in compliance compared to the Showa forks on my SS and Hayabusa. My SS forks have GSXR internals.
If anyone has addressed this issue with success, please let me know what you’ve done.

Rebuilt completely last winter. New seals, new fluid.

I'm not unhappy, but would agree they're on the stiff side.

I’m away from the bike right now but when I return home (?) I plan on checking the torque on the triple clamp in case of a binding situation, and also change to a lighter weight fluid.
If that doesn’t do it I may change springs.
If that doesn’t do it I’ll send them to a suspension expert.
I love this bike other than the forks. I thought having Ohlins forks was going to be great.
So far, not so much. The modified Showa forks on my SS are so much nicer than the Ohlins.
