  • Heads UP! Ohlins Shock on the market!

    This decision really hurts but sadly it must be done in order to get out of a financial bind. I only have a brief second to post this up and I will follow up with more details and pictures throughout the weekend. I have installed on my bike right now a Ohlins shock that is approaching a year and a half old. I've done 5 track days with it and close to 2,000 street miles while its been installed.
    I'm thinking of a couple different price options:
    1. If you want me to take it right off the bike, pack it nicely, and ship it to you I'm asking $800.
    2. If you would like me to take it off, rebuild the shock, put new Ohlins oil in it, pack it nicely, and ship it to you I'm asking $900.

    I work for Ken Hall at Superbike Suspension in Lockport, IL. If you've been to a trackday in the midwest you've most likely seen him or I working trackside. We are a certified Ohlins service center and I'd be willing to rebuild the shock before sending it out for the extra bit of cash.

    Another side note, the shock is sprung at the moment for a 180lb rider set at 30mm of sag which could change once you install on your bike based on how much stiction your control arm has etc...

    Let me know your thoughts guys... I'll post up pics as soon as possible and I'll have it out of the bike and ready to ship this coming monday.

      Just wanted to clarify why I was suggesting a rebuild on the shock. Not because there is anything wrong with it. The shock performs amazing right now but as a general rule of thumb for "maximum" performance espescially if you plan on doing track days/racing your suspension fluid should be changed yearly and the seals should be renewed bi-annually.

          She's out, she's clean, she's ready to be sold, and it depresses me to see the rotary shock back in my TLR... sigh....






          So who wants it?
