Ohlins Sale

Ohlins Sale for ADVRider Forum Inmates By Kyle Racing.

I have been meaning to do a new Ohlins sale for a while but you know how it goes.

This will be the third or fouth time we have done this so I hope by now we are known as a good Vendor to the Inmates.
What really pushed me to get it done was Ohlins announcing a price increase is on the way.

The new prices will be 5% higher than current Prices.

The New 5% higher prices go into effect on Jan 1, 2013

Ohlins makes 138 BMW shocks, alone, so rather than try and list all the shock prices here, Please use this link to look up what shock you want a price on.

what is the recommendation for a 2005 R1200GS. 90% of the riding for this particular bike is with pillion and luggage. Combined weight of the two humans is roughly 290 pounds. The standard height is a bit tall and i would really like it to be a bit lower.
What does the installion usually run?
Why chose this over Wilburs?

Sorry about the basic questions but i am not mechanically gifted.

Ohlins has a number of shocks for the R1200GS.

In a short shock, which will be about the same or a little lower than your stocker Ohlins Offers the BM508 and BM509.

I am not sure what the installation will run, as it will depend on what accessaries you have on the bike and what the shop hourly rate is.
Please check with whoever you plan to use to install them on that.

I believe Ohlins does these things better than any Motorcycle shock manufacture:


Support

Engineering

Resell Value

Ride Quality

Bike control
Feel
Build Quality

Ohlins has a number of advantages over all the other aftermarket shocks.

The first is support, Ohlins USA is the Distributor of Ohlins shocks in the USA and are owned by Ohlins Sweden.

This requires them to keep a large support staff and a very large inventory of spare parts.
So as the years go by there will always be parts and people who can service Ohlins shocks.

Ohlins has a number of shops like ours that can also do service and in our case warranty repairs if needed.

I work on maybe 1 or 2 Warranty problems a year. I sell more than 2000 Ohlins products a year.

The Warranty is 5 years on DEFECTS of parts or labor. This does not cover normal maintenance.

Ohlins is the largest producer of Aftermarket Motorcycle shocks.
Ohlins shocks are used all over the world at every level, including racing at the highest level.

This gives the 80 Ohlins Engineers first hand experiance in designing a reliable shock.
It means shocks are not just designed on a shock dyno, they are installed on bikes and tested by Ohlins Riders that include former racers.

Ohlins has an internet site called the Ohlins World Site, it lists all Ohlins Products made over the last 30 plus years.
I can look at spec sheets, Installation manuals, spare parts lists drawings, for everything Ohlins has ever made, this is a huge assist when Customers have Questions.

Ohlins has some new products in the last 12 months for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adv

The first are the ESP Replacement shocks.

Ohlins calls these the Mechatronic Shocks

Here is a link for detailed information on the BM670 and BM671 shock packages.

The second new product for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adv are the TTX design shocks the BM676/ BM677 for the R1200GS and the BM678/BM679 for the R1200GS Adv

http://www.bmws1000rr.net/pics/dualsportbmw.pdf

I would like to explain a little about TTX type shocks.

Ohlins introduced these to us in 2007.

The are a completely different design them all prior Ohlins shock.

They use a solid piston to move oil to two remote valves with shim stacks.

One is the Rebound circuit and the other is the Compression circuit.

By using a solid piston to two separate valve it solves a number of problems conventional shocks have

First the two circuits, rebound and compression are completely separate, so when one is adjusted the other is NOT affected.

Second the design reduces the possibility of cavitation, this allows Ohlins to reduce the Gas Pressure inside the shock from as high as 20 bar (294 PSI) to 6 Bar (88PSI) .

What this means is lower pressure inside the shock.

Lower pressure trying to push out shock oil, this makes the job of the seals easier, Lower friction, and most important a more reliable shock.

Great Service and Sale Price, a opportunity not to miss.

I'll bump this thread back to the top of the Vendor list. This is an excellent opportunity to get the Ohlins shocks that will transform your bike at a great price and from a dealer who is knowledgeable and very customer oriented. Give Dan a call, you will not be disappointed.

I have no connection with Dan and Kyle Racing--just bought a set of Ohlins from him yesterday after pestering him with numerous email questions and telephone calls, even changing my order, all of which he handled with good grace--could not be a better person with which to deal.

This ADvRider December sale price is not to be missed, and Dan tells me that Ohlins has announced a 5% price increase to take effect 1/2013. Don't miss out.
