Need A Little Help, Please

Hey there, all. Long time.,,, life's been getting in the way, but that's hopefully behind us now.

Anyhoo, I put Ohlins forks on the 929 today and all went well except when it came time to put the axle in.

Does anyone know which side the axle spacer that ohlins provides goes on and in which direction?

The instructions are unclear but seem to indicate right side with skinny side butting up against the Honda spacer. I assume, since it doesn't say to not use the factory spacers.

I just thought I'd ping to see if anyone had words of wisdom so I don't have to wait until Monday when I'd call Ohlins.

Oh, the forks also came with 4 extra screws that have me reading the instructions over and over and over and .......

TIA,

Bushrod

Re: Need A Little Help, Please

The Ohlins spacer replaced the spacer on the left fork side (clutch side) on my 954. I think it only fits one way. I had four Allen head screws also. Nice when extras are included. Make sure everything is properly torqued. When you get everything dialed in you are gonna love those forks!

I'm sorry to bump this so soon, but if *anyone* with a 929 w/Ohlins forks could let me know how many spacers their forks came with I'd appreciate it. They sent me a kit that has one Ohlins spacer that from their drawings appears to go on the rider's left side of the bike. Ohlins confirms this on telephone.

Problem is that's not enough. When forks are parallel and wheel spins as it should there's still about 1/8" distance between OE spacer on the rider's right and the inside of the fork leg.
