ohlins R&T's installed, but have a question before I can ride her........(954)

Got the Ohlins R&T forks installed tonight, easy enough....just got a little confusing when it came to centering the front wheel, the wheels spacers, and the new axle bolt.

what is the exact process? I do have the install instructions.

seems like the left side(as your sitting on the bike) axle shoulder extends into/between the fork legs, actually becoming a spacer itself. On the right side the stock spacer is replaced with the provided ohlins spacer, which is then butted up against a sleeve that is installed in the right fork leg axle hole, ultimately providing a shoulder for the ohlins spacer to butt up against.

Finally, the axle shoulders that fit inside either side of the fork leg holes are recessed about 3/8" respectively.

Lastly, ohlins provides an aluminum axle bolt that replaces the factory steel bolt, do I torque this bolt to the same 78 Nm?

does this sound right?

Looks nice!!!! Have you ridden it yet to see how they feel?

Looks like your gonna have to go with the brembo radial mounted monoblock calipers to match those bling bling forks!

just finished installing the DK link and Ohlins rear shock, one thing I can say for sure, the Ohlins suspension has a taller ride height, maybe it will settle some over time, also the DK link is a very close to my Arata high mount exhaust, may need to do a little clearancing.........looking forward to riding this thing tomorrow!
