Ohlins 2 way compression and rebound

I've been trying to look at what part number this shock is for the rc51? I looked and I thought it was HO148 but some websites say that this shock is high and low compression adjustable. If it helps the spring that it came with the numbers are 1091-36/105 L215. Trying to figure out what spring i should buy as well. I'm 170 with gear and running a kyle link. Also if somebody has a part# chart for the shock that would be awesome thanks!

Have you emailed say Dan Kyle or try giving LDH a pm? I thought Subsailor posted an Ohlins chart somewhere? Then again I could be wrong.

The HO148 and HO204 shocks are three-way adjustable shock (hi and low compression plus rebound) have a 13mm Hi-speed compression adjuster with a slotted Lo-speed adjuster at the center.

The HO148 was discontinued many years ago in favor of the HO204.
The two shocks practically the same.

This is from the HO148 manual, and it practically the same drawing as the HO204.


As for the spring, its a 105 N/mm or 10.7 Kg/mm, or 600 lb/in spring.

If you have an aluminum nut and a slotted screw adjuster, you have a three way. If you have a black plastic knob, you have the older two way shock that doesn't have hi/low speed compression adjustments.

I don't know what spring you need, but I can tell you that a 105 is way too stiff for you. I used that spring at 195 before gear and with a link.




I'm always right.

Thanks for the help guys I have a 2 way shock with a black knob. Actually that black knob fell off while I was riding I'm trying to see if i can get a part # for it -_- it just bugs me. And I figured I need a 95 spring from that chart. I remember reading somewhere DK has one of the two way shocks on his shelf he will never sell....Maybe he'll let me have the knob...

Contact Dan Kyle at Kyle Racing or Ohlins USA.
Hopefully Dan will be kinder to you.

With Ohlins, the gold extends beyond the finish.
Amazing how even a piece of plastic gains value when Ohlins is attached to it.

Anyone have the PDF or copy of the original manual, for the two-way shock with the plastic knob? I cannot find it anywhere online, and the manual I found for the HO184 shows low and high speed compression adjustments. I just need to know what the stock settings were, so I can start fresh. My suspension is way too harsh right now...

Thanks!

Mike at Kyle Racing had all the answers.

Looks like it's an HO 9430, and he sent me the complete build sheet!

I will keep buying stuff from them, as they always provide top-notch service!
