They look like OEM shocks with Ohlins decals on them?
Unfortunately no, they are the OEM shocks with Öhlins stickers on them. Hopefully the previous owner didn't represent the bike as having true Öhlins...because they are not.hi there,
im looking at a bike that appears to have ohlins rear suspenion, but from what i've seen on the forum, most SC ohlins rear suspenion bits are yellow springs with larger blue ohlins decals....
is what is shown in the picture a proper rear ohlins suspension bit for a sportc classic?
Definitely stock shocks with Ohlins stickers. That's one way to get a cheap upgrade.The adjuster rings look exactly like those on the OEM sachs, as does the whole top section, and the overall finish, even the way the variable rate spring get's tighter at the base.
If they are Ohlins, then he wasted his money as the Sachs appear to be just as well built - LOL.
I've gone from being 90% to 99% sure they are Sachs with decals. Don't trust anything else he says, unless he has receipts from Ohlins.
You're being very kind...in the sellers defense, the add listed all the mods and the ohlins suspension was not one of them, but i saw the picture and was wondering if it was ohlins. i guess a sticker dosnt count as a legit mod.
Sound like a cheeky fooker to me. What else might he let you assume? That it's never been dropped, never missed a service, not under finance, etc... I'd say you should trust nothing that he says from now on.thanks for the feedback. the guys add didnt say anything about ohlins suspenion, but when i asked him, he did say that it was...i dont know if he knew what i was talking about...but from what you guys are saying there is no way that - that can be a real set of ohlins. perhaps they made a black coil version at one point?
If you don't want the custom exhaust hangers after switching back to the OEM ones I'll take them off your handsthanks for the feedback. the wheels are marchesini. the bike only has 2000km's. im not that handy, but hopefully i would get my mechanic to permanently put on the passenger rear sets so i dont have to fumble around with them.
Lighter weight. The OEM triangles with passenger pegs are anchors. Lighter = QuickerSo what is the benefit of re hanging the cans and removing passenger pegs....? would the original big triangle thing have to go back on?
The triangle brackets that serve as exhaust hangers, footrests and passenger peg holders are big, ugly and heavy, and if you never take a pillion then they are an eyesore most people would love to get rid of - especially as the monoposto doesn't have them - so you get to see how good they look on other bikes everytime you log into this forum. I assume this is why some people get rid of them. (That's what I did, anyway).thanks for the feedback. the wheels are marchesini. the bike only has 2000km's. im not that handy, but hopefully i would get my mechanic to permanently put on the passenger rear sets so i dont have to fumble around with them.
