Who did you buy the Penske from? What did you specify for your prefered riding style? When you get your suspension built, the builder wants to know your weight and riding style so they can build the appropriate internal valving to meet your needs. Touring, street riding, track riding will have different internal stacks. Ohlins doesnt automatically mean better performance than ANY other quality brand, the ride quality comes from how its built on the inside.I tried Penske on my FZ-10 and no matter how I set it, including professional suspension tuning, I got a rough ride.
