If you can live without the external visuals of a Ohlins fork, you can have better-than-OEM-Ohlins performance with your stock fork if you have it rebuilt with Ohlins internals. Rick at Cogent Dynamics (NC Rick on here) can modify the internals and custom valve a 20mil Ohilins comp/rebound kit w/ springs on the old 900SS forks, or you can go balls out and have him install a 25mil cartdridge kits (again, adapted for use in 900SS fork). Probably spend about the same money on the 25mil retrofit as you would on a complete Ohlins fork, but then you know it's freshly rebuilt and valved and sprung precisely for your weight. That was my logic.
