Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

Can someone enlighten me?

For someone who rides mostly street and plans to ride, at the most, two track days a month, would a Fox be OK.

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

You'll be fine... But to me, if you can squeeze a few dollars more, the ohlins is better.

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

I have a Fox Racing shock and it works really well. I don't know how much better the Ohlins is but the Fox made a big improvement over the stock-shock.

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

You can't go wrong with either. I think Abtech favors the Fox.
We all have Ohlins 'cause that's what Dan sells! j/k!

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

Yep, Fox, Ohlins, and Penske are all good. Some prefer one brand over another but for us mere mortals I don't know that one is *really* any better than another.

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

I think all it really comes down to is what color you want your shock

Re: Ohlins vs FoxTCR Rear Shock?

I have used both. Have had several FOX shocks. Have some minor problems with them. Two came with out N2. Had to service them my self, not a big deal, but it could be if you don't have access to N2. The Ohlins has hydralic preload adjustment which is a plus for a street bike. Once setup, they both work very well.
