Re: suspension prices and question.
Not sure about how ebay has them priced. Decent ohlins rear (new) is 750-1500 (and up), just a set of fork cartridges is 1300 (new) from ohlins. Still would have to have the rest of the forks too.
Personally I would figure the read absorber to be cheaper as this will usually survive a good wreck. Forks tend to take a good beating in a crash. Maybe some of the "deals" aren't that good of deals.
