For those of you looking for a less expensive option to fix your front end Scrambler woes. Ohlins has released a Front fork spring kit complete with new fork caps that allow spring preload adjustments. While this does not address valving issues with the fork. The kit is lower cost and less hassle than a complete new cartridge. I will post pricing and availability in my vendor section as I am updated.

Less than a few pints on a Saturday afternoon! A Ducati dealer with a good tech would have no problems with the install.

Could be a good alternative mod for some riders, wonder if it works well Ken ?
I think we have heard about every request on this forum. Not everyone wants the best handling bike. I struggle with it from a tuners stand point. I have the best handling front and rear suspension Scrambler package and it's not for everyone. For a beginning rider who purchases a Scrambler this kit will be a nice starter upgrade along with a single adjustable shock.
For a example. Why ride around on a stock front end for a year contemplating a cartridge? This would help bridge the gap.

The installation document notes only a single (RH) side spring is fitted/included along with replacement caps (Step 7) - is that correct?

The picture above shows two springs.

That is a intriguing question. So the press release shows two springs and the release uses the word "Springs". The installation instructions show one spring. Ohlins in the US has no answer. So I will see when the kits that I ordered arrive. The positive side is no matter what it comes with you still get preload adjustment on both sides. Splitting springs and spring rates is normal so the cartridge spring may be doing all the work. As far as price. A standard single spring is usually $68 each and fork caps start at $200. So it's not overpriced either way.

I've also attached the whole installation PDF.
