Isn't one end of the shock (we are talking front here) or both just the pin? I can't quite picture it in my head, and I've never had to take it out. That would be harder to replicate with a water pipe.

As a positive note, I've found out there's an Ohlins guy in Seoul, but I'm wary of the prices. We'll see if I get it done locally (much faster) or in the US (slower due to shipping). In this case speed is not just a convenience, but also a safety factor with the bike sitting in the stall.

Side note-I intentionally have the bike sitting with the bars locked to the side and on the centerstand (and bags on) knowing full well that if someone plays with it, it will hit the ground immediately. It never moves. I think in the US it would already be on it's side.
