just bite the bullet and buy the ohlins. it's expensive because it's worth it.
you don't seem to struggle spending money on the grom(s), so why not just get it over and done with
the ohlins / bushing combo makes for a very compliant rear suspension.

I'd find it much more interesting if you would compare shocks instead of buying twice the same, say they are great until they break and are not so great anymore.
Would be nice to see how a ''high end'' cheap chinese shock compares to a basic Kitaco shock.
Yep DIY it, same as when I move on and start my next project for building me a e-foil board
check out the new craze in e-foil

the yss is proven and dirt cheap, the best of the cheap shocks. I can't imagine running one of those 60 dollar garbage shocks.
A bunch of old stuff that runs. 2stroke grom build...in process.. eventually...
Save up and buy the Ohlins. If you're ever strapped for cash, slap the stocker back on and eat the $50 loss for a one-day sale of the Ohlins.
If you were doing any track work, I'd probably go for the RB given reviews.
