Last December I enquired on the Ohlins site for a shock for my strada, they got back to me through Steve Cramer Products here in Aust. this is the email.
These 851/888 shocks are no longer made by the factory, however we can build
you one from spare parts (brand new). We do this all the time, for shocks
that are discontinued.
We are one of only eight factory authorized Ohlins shocks builders, world
The price for the shock will be $1400 inc GST.
The price is Aussi dollars, which i still havn't managed to put aside, so still running the Showa.
