However, it's now 99 degrees Farenheit, and baby, that thing is hot to touch.
I don't know if this will be a problem for me.
Very reason I chose the Emulsion Ohlins shock. No clearance issue with the TOR's, and far enough a way from the pipe to avoid o/heating the oil.
But in saying that, Ohlins oil can handle incredible temp ranges, and not suffer viscosity problems, or deterioration. Oh, and my emulsion units are adjustable for preload, and rebound dampning,and ride height adjustment. (blue nut at the bottom). R Taylor at Nth west suspension NZ, (now part of Crown Kiwi Enterprises), is a guru for building Ohlins gear to individual clients.
