That is it. I have one being delivered tomorrow. Ordered at the beginning of February. Ohlins has had some backorders here in the US. Ohlins described it as  "serious backorder issues". Glad it is coming...

Simon I ordered through Hard Racing Performance. They had a sale in Feb. Got it for $317.00. I have bugged Ohlins in Hendersonville on a regular basis to get updates.

I've been bugging Ohlins for over a year for this damper.

I know space is limited where the damper is located and would take a little thought to manufacture a bracket but a year? Simply rotating the damper body 90 and fabbing a bracket should be pretty staight forward.

Oh well, they are finally here so looking forward to getting mine mounted.
Why is common sense so uncommon?

I've been waiting for Wunderlich to stock it for a while now because they are the only ones to actually list it in their online cat for me.

Seems to be available from them now, so time to put an order in.
