Yep, I also checked back with them just a couple of days ago. Further delay in production and delivery, no details given. Maybe time to check out that MUPO cartridge...
I sent Öhlins USA a message via Facebook. No word yet when they will available, but they have a part number - FKA101.
These are actually my second choice. I wanted to get the HH-Racetech ones, but they are tough to get as well.
Are they? I talked to Mr. Hofmann last year and it didn't seem to be a problem...
I know - it shouldn't - but I need them shipped to the US, maybe that's what holds it up
That seems odd, I ordered mine in January from Anderwerks and got them by end of February. They are installed and ready for testing (that'll be tomorrow hopefully ). They have the seperate rebound and compression dampening on each fork and required no modifications to the forks like the previous versions did, so I would think they are the new setup.
The rear shock was the one I had to wait for, it jsut came in a couple weeks ago. Just finished getting it all adjusted and set up today, Had to go back and get some more preload set into the rear so I could get the sag right with all the camping gear loaded up.
Yours are most likely the earlier ones. We are talking about some newer Öhlins cartidges. They were announced in October 2012 and aren't available yet....
Which Öhlins shock did you use? and did you install the Indy kit?
Possibly they are the earlier ones. I was under the impression though that those required the bottom of the fork to be machined out. These required nothing to be modified, just a direct install.
The rear shock is am S46DR1B. Both front and rear were specified to my weight and loading. And yes, I did get the Indy kit for it.
thought so as well. what's the part number on yours?
I don't have the part numbers right now, but they are from Ohlins directly, not through the Canadian importer. They are based on the NIX cartridges. I got them through Dave at Anderwerks, I just did the r&r and dropped them off with him to do the actual installation in the forks.

it would be great if you could find out so I could go back and talk to them with that information.
looking forward to see what your impression of the kit is.

Now that I'm at home, I dug out the invoice. The front kit is shown as OH-FGK 30000M. They did come out of the US from Ohlins directly.
Yeah - I think that is the earlier kit done by Öhlins USA. The newer one is produced by the "mothership" and supposed to be a bit cheaper, whenever it's available.
In any case, they are a vast improvement on the stock guts.
hm, the only other ones i know of are these ones? http://twalcomusa.com/ohlins-ttx-cartrige-kit-f800gs.html and i thought they require some modifications?
That kit should be a drop in
Oddly enough these looks different:
But sometimes they generic pictures so I don't really know. Lets hope now ones show up soon.
Both different from what I have.
There they state that the '13 fork replacement is available
Also available for earlier models? (Not WP 2013)
