I have an S4RS, so the factory Ohlins front and rear. People a lot more qualified than me say theyíre very good. Though Iíve had my bike for a couple of years, itís still not dialed in to my satisfaction. As much as Iíve played around with settings, it still seems not very compliant, unnecessarily stiff. Even if they arenít top of the line Ohlins, theyíre still Ohlins. There are other rear shocks with good reputations too, so you have options back there. Front, it just depends how much you want to spend. What forks are on the bike ? If theyíre adjustable, you can upgrade the internals. If money is no object, Iíd go Ohlins. You could send your stock forks to a pro and probably be really happy with the results. Even if you just put straight rate springs of the correct weight for you, and new fluid and seals will make a difference.
