You made a install mistake
the 2 washers go under the triple clamp which gives the damper space when turning handlebar...

Im jumping on the Ohlins damper this Friday.  $395 is a bit rich but from what Ive read this is a game changer over stock.  The Bride is going to kill me when she sees my bank statement next month.  I plan on tracking this bike this year a bit so I can plead its a safety issue to her. :188:

Nice write up / comparisons.i fully agree!

I think I am running it on 14 or 15 and its CHERRY!!

Old thread, but taking my chances.
what do you mean by 14 or 15? Do you mean 14-15 clicks away from the hardest or softest position?

Yes.  Im at 12 clicks in and its pretty tough to turn left to right.  Feels phenomenal at speed.

FIRST setup your suspension sag right. That itself reduces the headshake a lot! I still get some with the ohlins above 130-140 mph but that can be dialed out with a few clicks on the damper ....

I have no idea how to do that, and the manual is not as informative as a video for me.
Is it basically like this video for the RR?

Dave Moss is a suspension guru that is widely respected. He has posted many videos on youtube on this subject. Here is a link to his "home" page or simply search youtube for his videos.

I buckled down and got the motool slacker digital scale to set mine up. It becomes a single person job. A lifetime tool.
