Hi all,
Finally addressing the lackluster stock suspension of my 2017 FZ09. Are these normal prices, and would this be a good choice for 90% street, 1 track day per year riding vs. the Andreani, GP, or K-tech options?

Ohlins STX46 Street Rear Shock $510 from $600 https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/ohlins-stx46-street-rear-shock-yamaha-fz-09-mt-09-fj-09-xsr900
Ohlins NIX30 Street Cartridge $871 from $1,025 https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/ohlins-nix30-street-cartridge-kit-yamaha-fz-09-mt-09-fj-09-xsr900

Would I notice the upgrade from YA-335 to YA-535 as a once per year track day rider?
Thanks for your advice!

A riding buddy and I both bought the same setup. I have a 15 FZ, my friends is a 19 MT. We both got the more expensive rear shock, with remote adjustment and reservoir. I noticed a big improvement, I'm heavier 205 lbs. Neither of us track our bikes, and I ride like the old man I am. The cartridge kit is on sale at Revzilla and that savings could offset the price of the more expensive rear shock. The bike feels much more planted and the ride is greatly improved. I think it is money well spent. Good luck.

Ride sane
