Hi

I was curious what direction you went in, did you do anything more then a basic rebuild? if so what modifications did you make and how happy where you with the outcome?

I have the 2001 996 and some old discussions claim that the upgrading the compression makes no significant change on it's own and a rebound modification will yield greater results. that said I see a lot of people selling their old Showa's and that makes me think that saving my money and making the switch to Ohlin's is the final destination and I should not take any detours...

Thanks

All valid points, and I am not questioning the quality of the showa's especially on public roads. I purchased the compression gold valve up grade, and the only feed back I could get when I started taking a closer look at the stack for my set up was one person saying that they felt no discernable change on their monster with a similar but not identical shock, so I was hoping to get some feed back on some truly comparable real world riding. also because it's a base post type set up that requires more time and modification than the bolt type, and frankly I'm lazy at the best of times, so doing the work with not measurable change (riding style, skill, application not withstanding) is something I want to avoid.

Thanks again for your feedback.
