Dan Kyles New Factory Ohlins Suspension Guru

Just in Case someone on this Board Ever Actually Owns a 1000RR ( Iam Hopeful)

Dan Kyle's New Factory Ohlins Suspension Guru

Well got quite a surprise at the Button Willow AFM race. A new Merc/Dodge Tall Van pulls up with the Dan Kyle Logo on the side. Turns out that Dan has recently -hired Ohlins AMA support guy, Joey (dont know his last name). He is hella-knowledgable about all the Ohlins valving/set up for the AMA bikes, cause he was the guy that did it.

An AWESOME resource for everyone that needs some suspension tweaking either on the racetrack or for the street.

He recommended a new valving configuration for my CBR1000RR's Ohlins R&T forks (w/SB valving)--that really eliminated alot of the dive on hard braking. He is also the one that helped develop the new valving for the HRC Link/Ohlins set up. I will try this at the end of the month at Infineon and report back.

If you have/need anything Ohlins--this is an awesome opportunity

Kudos to Dan

How much does he pay you for bird-dog fee?

J/k. I'm just bitter because I can't afford that right now. Well I can but there's that dinette set.

I (think I) worked with him at a couple of AMA events with James on his WSBK forks. Very good suspension guy.

Me: Honey, we're not getting furniture in our new home because I need new suspension for my motorcycle.

Ridiculously out of my league girlfriend: What is suspension? Tickle me.

And then there's this asshole...
