I found a Ohlins s1000rr shock. I believe I have read the swap info correctly and got the correct shock. Here's my questions:
1. Does the Ohlins need to be modified (spring, shims, valves) to work properly for the bike? I know the spring has to be for my weight but what about the rest?
2. What shop in the US would be best suited to do the work to the shock?
3. At the same time I want to send the forks off to be rebuilt and modified with upgrade valves and shims. What shop in the US would be best suited for this work?

Thanks

Race tech is a one stop shop for all your above questions. you probably will need to revalve the shock for your geometry.
I haven't had the same experience with them. When I've called them in the past I was told things like
"I don't know"

"we don't have that in our records so just send it and maybe we can work on it"

The one time I did use them they told me 2 weeks turn around an it was 2 months of me calling and getting the run around before I got my stuff back.
