Ohlins Help
« on: May 25, 2018, 09:29:20 pm »
Just picked up a used 2009 today and it has Ohlins installed on the rear.. Can't find a model number to understand the best way to adjust this.

If I could figure out how to get pics on here I will post some
Thanks

you didn't mention model number, so I just went on what I found, STX46 or KA109,
Didn't download it myself, just giving you a possible link...
