Having rebuild my Sachs on my 748 and the Ohlins on my other bikes I'd go for the Ohlins. The Sachs (in a 748 at least) used a blader to hold the Nitrogen, Ohlins uses a floating separator piston. The rest of the parts inside are just nicer. It was made to be rebuild and services. The sachs, not so much. It's a price point part.
I've used RaceTech in the forks on my 01 Monster and the made a huge difference on the compression side, they did not do anything on the rebound. Not a huge deal but I would do it different next time.
