Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave. I find the CRF rear suspension more comfortable and want to fit the shock on my RD07a. The CRF shock can be found relatively cheap as second hand, and saves the investment in an...
Hi, does anyone have fitted or know if a centrestand is long enough to work with an ohlins shock and fork extenders fitted. I am thinking of buying one and wonder if it will need extending to enable it to work correctly. Many thanks, Jason.
I have a RD07, completely original and in good shape, only some minor cosmetic issues.
I found and bought an USD forks & the respective triple clamps from a 950 Adventure. I see a guy that kept the same wheel, discs, speedometer, in summary only swapped the forks and the triple clamps...
Finally got my first decent ride on this new acquired bike today. :D
After a little suspension and carby tuning, I think I'm going to like it!
My main concern is how much the fairing rattles and moves about on rougher tracks. Not sure what I can do about it, though.
It came with lots of...
Go back 16 years..... I was walking with my wife and saw my first XL1000V. I definitely remember saying how it looked like something I'd like to own.
Last Saturday, I bought one on a whim. :D
It's a1999 model with 64000km on the clock, genuine luggage, 2 screens, Ohlins shock, SWM...
I had an uprated Ohlins spring with adaptors fitted by Kais in Atherton before our Greece trip back in '08 (blimey!).
Stock spring rate is 13.2kg/mm as I recall, the Ohlins 15kg/mm and it does carry the weight better without being hard/harsh solo.
I can fit to a decent spare...
I love my TL but all my riding is around town and it's just frustrating! Im looking to buy a big traily so I thought Id put the offer out there.
-Ohlins rear shock.
-K-Tech fork internals.

Not so much a thread, but our beloved AT was stolen on 17 Sept from Pembury, Kent. :(:( It's got a broken speedo so if you know of anyone trying to fix it or sell it, let me know! Also, it's got gorgeous ohlins shocks, so if you come across any of those being flogged... Reg N185 XDC.
Back Ohlins sorted & now onto the forks, ordered a set of intiminators from the states. Whilst they're off they're going to be stripped & re powder coated, question is how much fork oil does the @ take (think it's 5wt with intiminators) & what's the best to get?Also what's the story with fork...
Had an issue with my Ohlins rear shock ie service, weight related spring fitted & had to have a new crown fitted as the original one had cracked! Many thanks to John at Revs suspension in Halesowen in Birmingham who did an outstanding job.
Question is if anyone has the same unit fitted, where...
Had a nice trip on some forrest roads saturday, and testes out my gopro cam at the same time. The result can be seen here:
Its cool to see the suspension working, made me tempted to upgrade to a ohlins rear shock.
Nice view from the end of the road:
Well lads any good recommendations for bike places local for this kind work?going fittin a secondhand ohlins and getting fork seals,progressive springs and new oil in the forks so want it all setup right together,fitting a can as well so would lie a rejet to gey the most out of it
Has nyone fitted one of the Wilbers shocks with external preload adjuster to RD07A?
I'm trying to choose the proper place for external preload adjuster and just can't get the idea of what was the intended place to fit the adjuster's mounting plate which came with the shock. It has two...
I have seen several threads about improving the suspension of the Dominator but most of them are old.
For the rear shock I have seen basically: Wilbers, Hagon, Hyperpro and Ohlins (not really and option for price)
For the front suspension I have seen progressive springs from Hyperpro...

Greetings chaps, I have found an Ohlins TTX 44 Mk 2 from a Husaberg supermoto for sale and was wondering if it can be modified to fit my dommie project.
All I can find out is that its 4.5 cm shorter than the dommie mono between the bolt holes.
This will obviously reduce the ride hight which is...
To celebrate my getting a job:blob6::blob5::blob4::blah5::happy2::happy2::angel5::wav:, I have decided to blow my first pay cheque on a decent shock for my flat tracker project.
As Sweden is only 100 miles away, I was thinking of finding a second hand Ohlins unit online.
Does any one know of any...
I have just completed an upgrade of the rear shock spring, and have gone thru the complete dismantling of the bikes rear end.
During this mammoth outting I was astounded with the difficulty of access to the carby due mainly to the enormous and cumbersome airbox, and in turn, the need to remove...
