My '94 RS was fine until 40K miles when I bottomed out the front shock on a bumpy road. I replaced the OEM Showa with a Works front shock. It has been great. The bike now has 100K + miles...probably time for a rebuild. At 65K miles an Ohlins was added to the rear. The bike's handling felt better than new w/both shocks. Handling is, after all, what I like about this bike. It was the best money I spent on the bike, but prices were a lot cheaper then for an Ohlins. I'm glad to hear the newer OEM shocks are much better. Happy New Year!
