I have purhased a set of Ohlins RFX 48 in decent condition. Sprung and valved for my weight. I also found a great deal on a set of WP closed cartridge spring forks sprung and valved for my weight also that I purchased that has biklet lugs, fresh kashima and fresh tini lowers with billet lugs.

Any suspension gurus have any input on performance of each? Im an A moto rider and occasionally ride woods. Both I imagine would be an upgrade over my stock AER (2017 ktm 250sx.). My question is, is the Ohlins better performance over the closed cartridges? I'm not too picky and was just wondering if there was a huge difference and I should go with one over the other.

Side note, I won't be able to ride on both before I sell a set so unfortunately I'll be making a decision before riding both. Thanks guys. Pics attached. Photo

Personally I'd run the WP CC's. When set up correctly I would pick them over Ohlins or KYB SSS any day of the week. Plus they're much simpler to take apart then the Ohlins if you work on your own stuff. Just my 2 cents

I have a set of CC forks that I'm having setup for my 2017 TC250. Tired of dicking with air pressure. I'd go with the WP CC over Ohlins for DIY reasons as well.

Thanks guys, for simplicity reasons I was leaning towards the CC as well, not to mention look better lol. The AER doesnt seem bad, a bit harsh (I'm sure valving would help) but I am sincerely not a fan of coming back from riding and the fork pressure has bumped up 10 psi.

What year is the Ohlins? At least until 2014 i preferred the WP CC feeling and feedback over Ohlins. Ohlins fork material was just to flexi or provided poor feedback. Talking 3-4sec per lap switching back and fwd.

2016. I think the CC are what I'll keep and have a buddy interested in the Ohlins. Thanks for all the feedback!

If set up correctly, yes.

CC forks will have the bigger axle? You'll either have to purchase offset triple clamps to bring it back to stock or run it as is...
