That's NOT a bad price. My latest R1 shock cost me:
E-bay buy = $52 delivered;
mailing shock to Racetech = $20;
Racetech for an Eibach spring, powdercoated yellow, and returned = $182;
local machine shop to "do" my R1 bushing = $47; for a
TOTAL of $301.
So-o-o, roughly $400 for an Ohlins shock...? Priceless!

I e-mailed the seller about the weight of the rider it was set-up for. He got back with me and didn't know.
