(Bam!…) Ohlins Shock available as shown with intergraded spring preloader.

 

The Ohlins shock has a large 46mm body and 16mm shaft design, an internal dividing floating piston that separates the nitrogen from the fluid for consistent fade free performance during extreme conditions, adjustable damping and spring preload.

 

It is fully rebuildable for many years to come, revalvable and will out live the bike.

The 8mm wrench preload drive allows over 8mm range of additional spring adjustment plus the 10mm preload the spring already has on it so about 18mm total preload at this setting on the spring.

 

(Use any 8mm T-Tool ,socket or drive not supplied)

Above the black arrow shows adjustable rebound damping about 45 clicks or so, the red arrows show length adjustable eye that can be adjusted all while on bike.

 

It adds about 11mm /-1 mm to the overage shock eye-to-eye length of 374mm.

Above the standard BMW RnineT Scrambler forks.

 

They are non adjustable and are damper rods design like the 1970’s.

Yep,… So above these 1970’s style damper rods with a couple oil flow holes are all that you get with the 2016-on Bmw Scrambler fork (springs not shown but this is the ride quality damper rod).

The Ohlins FKS Cartridge kit with 4 port pistons and real valving (springs determined by rider weight/etc).

 

They have adjustable spring preload caps about 18 turns, adjustable compression, and adjustable rebound that can all be done from the top caps while on the bike.

Above the 14mm hex on both does spring preload about 18 turns each, the 3mm allen does either compression or rebound adjustment, all can be done independently from the other.

The standard inner fork tube are 43mm which are beefy enough.

Above you do need to transfer over the top out spring and cone that looks like above, follow the manufacturers install instructions.

 

The inner and outer tube do not have to be separated but this shows the parts more clearly and is easier to work on to prep or replace seals and cleaning etc.

 

You would then need a 43mm seal driver to best set the seals wipers and bushings back in correctly.

Much improved ride quality over a vast majority of conditions and rider weight groups.

The Ohlins steering damper has about 20 clicks of adjustment and works extremely well.
