PM with pricing sent.
I bought a Mechatronic set from Mr. Kyle yesterday, he advised me about the group sale even though I was not aware of the invite, thanks Dan!
PS, This is the second set of Ohlins I have bought from Kyle Racing in the last 5 years and the customer service is just as good now as it was then..
Hi Dan , Can you pm me a price for a set of standard TTX Ohlins vs. TTX ESA Mechatronic for my 2011 BMW R1200GS Adventure. Thanks, Mike

Could you send a price for front and rear set on a 2003 1150gs delivered to Canada.
Looks like a great offer, but what are the differences between the options listed for the R1150GS? Is the external reservoir only a matter of convenience, or does it offer additional capabilities/features? Sorry if I'm asking a dumb noob question, and thanks for the remarkable opportunity!
Dan can you give me a price on a pair of OHLKA149 (Ohlin part #) for my Kawasaki ZRX1200
Good stuff Dan! I need to give you a call this week to get some seals for rebuilds.
If anyone is on the fence about picking up some Ohlins stuff - THE TIME IS NOW - Talk to Dan!
Dan, can you send me some options for my '01 R1150GS? I am more of a highway rider with occasional gravel roads. I weigh 230 and am 6'4". I typically put around 15K on the bike per year. Let me know if you have any other things necessary to put the quotes together.

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 .
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:
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.
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?
Dan--i have a '11 multi s touring. is it poosible to upgrade to skyhook? thanks!
