Contact Ohlins directly and ask them.

Chinese, I sent a note to ZG to ask him.
I think he had the Ohlins on his bike.
Not sure whom else has them.

Watch and see if he replies..

Ride safe, Ted

I know I would take Ohlins suggestion over any shop unless they taught Ohlins how to build the things.

Hi,
      Listen, call Ohlins and talk to the nice Techs, they know what they are doing!!!

As you know you can buy a REAR shock made for the C14....

Not so on the front forks, those are made for the ZX-14 and when used on the C14, that has to be taken into account!

Just sayin, talk to OHLIN"S! :great:

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

Sorry Ted, I don't recall what springs I ran in the forks, been too long ago for this old memory...  :truce:

Good luck to the OP, enjoy that new gold!  :great: :great:

When I got mine, the Ohlins shop that I worked with, installed a 10Nnm in one and a 10.5Nnm in the other. This was for a rider w/gear at a weight of 260 lbs.

Hi Guys

My Ohlins fork ABS mounting is different from the drawing you send me . Maybe is due to my fork is a newer version type. Need to Fabricate a C bracket for ABS mounting . Everything Plug & Play . Only Sag adjustment abit . That all.

Currently My GTR is install with the following .

Ohlins Fork
Ohlins Shock
Rapidbike Race Module
Rapidbike Quickshifter
Rapidbike Youtune
Galfer Front Rotor
Titanium front Caliper
Bearing Masterpump
Bearing Clutch Masterpump
Oberon Slave Clutch Pump
Full System Akrapovic
C14 Sportscreen
Intelligent LED head light
Launch control

Please advise if any other upgrade require.

i am think of installing Ohlins steering Damper. But till now , cannot find  information on web for  the mounting Bracket .

That's the same as on my Ohlins fork, so the bracket design that I sent you will work. As I've stated (in other threads, but you may not have seen those comments), you will need to modify the ABS Sensor by cutting off it's mounting tab and the clocking features it has. I used a Deimel with a sanding disk to clean up the ABS Sensor so it will slide into the large hole in the bracket (until the sensor is fully inserted) and use the set screw to secure it. It only takes something like a 1/2 turn or less once the set screw makes contact to secure the sensor. Then mount the Sensor & Bracket Assembly to the fork.

I had a lot going on yesterday afternoon, so I wasn't able to take photos of my setup. I'll try to get them this afternoon when I get home from work.

You shave away the mounting on the abs sensor . While i remain mine . i yesterday went to view my bike. its not yet ready . so i did not take any photo. latest update from my bikeship  , they don't intend to use any bracket. Just shave abit of the abs mounting Tab & use back the ABS mounting .


Thanks
