Ohlins will deliver the kit with the springs of your choice.
Thanks, still chuffed with the 35 after 2-3 weeks!

I think i have made my decision on what kit to go for when i do upgrade, and the Ohlins kit is my preference at the moment. However i will probably have to wait a few weeks before i can commit.

Any advice on where to purchase? The best price i have seen is 1710 from BG Motorsports here in Northampton. I think they are a damper workshop and an Ohlins dealer, so i do feel comfortable with them.

I have read a few threads on the springs, especially the swift ones. Am i right in thinking that the ohlins springs are better for predominantly road use, and the swifts for mainly track use? Also what were your reasons for not liking the supplied springs?
