FWIW and from my experience with Ohlins on a K75S (rear), R1100RS, and
now R1150RT -
I have bought Ohlins from Wim Kroon and from local dealers. Each has
inquired about rider, passenger, and luggage weights and bike uses and
The spring and therefore spring rate _is_ important, however each spring
has a vary wide range of pre-load adjustability.
With a rider weight of ~190lbs and about 1/3 of use being 2-up traveling
(125lbs passenger, and side and top cases loaded for extended touring),
I have found adjustability beyond my needs! In addition, at a 2 day
'track day' I also had more than adequate adjustability.
