Ohlins help / question

Let this be a good place to ask a little about a lot to do with Ohlins forks for the RC.

I will start with a good one which I will also be asking Dan Kyle Racing about in the new year.

Does anyone know if Style & Performance fork bottoms work on Ohlins fork stanchions
Because I may just pursue that as I still have a line on a mint set of 108MM Radial calipers.

If you don't already know this then you should just send me the Gold.

MadbuTTer, you can come look - and ride - but these " golds " be staying right here.
The manufacture date on the bottom is my 22 birthday, fate intended this set for me.

I'd highly doubt it. The threads for the slider may very well be the same pitch and diameter, as there aren't that many options with the same size fork sliders, but the internal mounting for the damper cartridges could be very different.

Sell the S&P's and have some custom made radial brackets made up. Keep the axial mount brackets in a box and forget about them.




I'm always right.

The fork bottoms screw on the fork tubes of the Ohlins forks and secured with red lock-tite along with torquing to 200 N/m.

Pull out a big cheque book . The FG322 caliper brackets are going to cost a pretty penny to do custom. Will be very nice though.

Depends on who is doing the design work, but yeah they won't be cheap. Material alone could be several hundred dollars.

I'm pretty sure drew or someone already has drawings for them. I think that would be the hardest part: finding a set to take measurements from.




I'm always right.
