Ohlins mod

Hi All,
I have been riding my RC51 SP2 for about a month now, getting used to the setup etc, the bike is bone stock except for the Sato Banzais.
I ride in all weather, rain or shine and a combination of freeway and hill roads, and I ride everyday, so my question is ...is it really worth my money to invest in an Ohlins rear shock setup (from Dan Kyle)... I have heard all sorts of opinions on this? Will it really make a difference to my everyday riding? (I'm 200lbs, 6ft, if that's a useful data point)?
Thanks a lot in advance!

It would help with adjustability. The link would be more noticable first since you are newer to riding the RC.


I don't mean to down play it too much as it is an excellent mod.
