Ohlins Gas 25ís Cartridges

I just scored a set of Ohlins gas 25ís cartridges via an AMA racer getting out of racing. A friend of a friend of a friend.
Anyone have an experience running them? Any feeback?
Going to have Tman refresh them and setup for my weight. Going to see if he can add extenders as well.
I have never ridden a track bike with gas only the non gas cartridges so this should be interesting.
It was a deal I could not pass up.
Thanks

Should be good. Myself I've switched back and forth between some Traxxion AK-Gas and Ohlins R&T forks on my K5 and just about the same laptimes on both of them.
You get the right springs and the Ohlins should be great I think.

You will never guess who is picking up a 2012 RSV4 F. One of our mutual friends. He is going to email you so keep and eye out.

I picked up the Ohlins gas 25's today as the deal was to good to pass up. Also got some great setup info for the 2012 1000.

Sending my forks back to Thermosman to have him put the gas 25's in and spring them for me. Not sure on the extenders as they guy had the 25's extended 10mm internally. I still may get them in case down the road I want to go more than 10mm.
