Ohlins "Skyhook suspension"

Dan, great offer on the Ohlins stuff, Thank You. Have any upgrade or improved parts been made available for the electronic suspension on the Ducati Multistrada 1200?

My understanding is that Ohlins is now offering an aftermarket suspension system similar to the Sacks Skyhook suspension on the 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200. Any information on this new system? I understand that this was announced 07Dec12. If this system is still unannounced then I know nothing .

Cheers

-Marty
For the R1150GS there is One front shock and 4 rear shocks available

The front is a simple design Emulsion Type shock.
Emulsion type shocks are used for a lot of front BMW's and many HD rears.

They work very well for good ride quality when the amount of stroke is long such as on BMW fronts. They are the least expensive shock, as the use the least number of parts.

Rears Ohlins Offers these four shock:
BM542
BM940
BM942
BM045

The BM542 is the most expensive, it has adjustable Rebound Adjustable Compression, and a Hydraulic spring preload adjuster.
This shock is also special in that it has what Ohlins calls a Progressive Damping.

It uses 2 pistons, one like all the other 46 series Ohlins and the second additional damping need the end of the stroke. This is the best shock for any off road use.
This was first used by Ohlins in 2005/2006, I found it funny another brand is touting it as something new or unusal.

The BM940 is the standard road shock, not really made for off road use. It has the same Hydraulic spring preload adjuster but only Rebound adjustable.

The BM942 is the same as the BM940 but it is shorter to lower the back of the bike.

The BM045 is also the same as the BM940 but it does not have the Hydraulic Spring preload adjuster.

The rear shocks are one of three designs. Piggyback reservoir, Monotube with a remote reservoir, Monotube, or TTX.

Ohlins does not make a TTX for this bike, so for now I will skip that. Just let me say the TTX is the best of the bunch and the newest design as well.

The BM542 is a Monotube with a remote reservoir, The advantage is a little more oil, and easier to service (cheaper to service as well) than a Monotube.

The BM940, BM942, and BM045, are all Monotube shocks.

I prefer the Piggyback or remote reservoir.

All of these shocks are high pressure Nitrogen.

This is another one of the advantages of a TTX , it runs 1/3 to 1/2 the pressures of this design shock.

The first things we have been doing to the 1200S are stiffer front and rear springs, even for 150 lb riders the springs are too soft.

The OEM fronts are 6.0 Nmm we install mostly 7.0 Nmm but have 7.5 Nmm and stiiffer.

The Rear is a 85 Nmm stock, we use a 100 Nmm as the replacement.

This mod alone is usually enough to fix both ends.
It really make a huge difference.

We can install different valve specs into the front forks, fo anyone how has done the springs and still ewants to reduce brake dive, I do not think it is necessary.

I do not think you will see Ohlins on the 2013 1200S, but that is still just a Rumor.

'07 GSA 1200 ADV Options

Hi Dan,

I'm currently running what I bought from previous owner. Elka front with stock rear. I'm 175 lbs w/o gear. I ride on and off highway with camping gear. What are the options for my ride. I saw the promotion about the BM606/607 is that my best option?


Thanks,
Fred

I hope I didnt catch this thread too late! Im not very knowledgeable about the suspension system so must rely on suggestion.

I have an 08 gs that is ridden about 85% on road and 15% off road mostly farm roads but sometimes random backwoods trails I find that can become quite jarring sometimes. The serious trail riding is pretty rare like less than 2% of all riding but I dont want to break the shock when I find myself out there and not have the right one.

95% of all riding is done solo me weighing in at around 190 with gear on. The bike will usually have full cases installed. I wouldnt mind if the bike was lowered an inch or thereabouts but not higher. I barely touch the tiptoes of my feet if i dual foot and while I do use one foot most of the time, backing out of a slight incline in a parking space with the balls of your feet is a little annoying.

What would you suggest for my bike? Will an occasional two-up ride be an issue? If it's not too much, let me know the worst all the way through to the absolute best option (besides ESA as I am not about to convert my bike for that).

Thanks a bunch !!

The Ohlins rear shock for the CBR929 is no longer available.

We do have Ohlins springs and 20 MM Ohlins valves for the CBR929 front forks.

The springs are $140 a set, the 20 MM Valve kit, all 4 valves preassembled is $259, and the Ohlins fork oil is $26.

Or we install all of it with labor it is $675.

Thanks, Dan
