Yeah, I think you need some "specialty" tools for the Ohlins as well. I've got 60,000 on a pair for my R1100S. No leaks and they still ride nice, but a bit on the soft side. The hard part on rebuilding shocks is getting all the air out of the oil. In the garage, that usually means a big bucket and assembling them in the bucket of oil, or letting them sit for a while to let the air settle out before you put them together. Then being careful not to introduce any air. Ohlins rebuilds are around 300 to 400 for qualified shop.
