Introduction
Öhlins Racing congratulates you on
your choice of front fork for your
motocross bike.
All Öhlins products are designed
with just one aim; to win races. To
design a winner you need a concept
starting with a unique know-how. You
add engineering skill, precision and
the best material available. The result is quality, endurance and winning performance.
Your new Öhlins front fork is developed from experience gained during
years of successful cooperation with
the World Championship winning
works motocross teams.
Spring rates and damping forces
are developed just for your bike. The
design and the settings are consequently the results of extensive testing and no guesswork!
Öhlins shock absorbers and front
forks have dominated the motorcycle
scene for several years and have
captured more World Championship
titles than any other brand, over 60
titles!
A well equipped network of authorised Öhlins service centres around
the world, with specially trained mechanics, can help you with personally
tuned settings, service, repairs and
spare parts.
Design
Öhlins new up-side-down (USD) front
fork is designed to combine the
advantages of comfortable, safe
conventional forks and rigid, light
USD forks. The result is a unique
combination of being rigid, precise in
corners and during hard braking yet
comfortable, forgiving when “overlanding“ and in big bumps.
Your new Öhlins USD front fork
has aluminium outer legs and 46 mm
steel inner legs, with a polished titanium nitride surface for lowest possible friction.
The legs also feature a completely
new bushing design with two fixed
and one sliding bushing.
The new USD fork features the
Öhlins championship winning cartridge damping system.
The fork is fully adjustable with external adjuster for compression- and
rebound damping.
The compression adjuster is located
at the bottom of the fork leg, fig 1, the
rebound adjuster at the top, fig 2.
Spring preload is adjusted with
washers, fig 3, and optional springs
are available to suit different tracks
and riders.
In the legs there are also “airsprings“ (the air trapped above the
oil) that work together with the “real“
spring. You adjust the air-spring by
raising or lowering the oil level in the
legs.
By using different combinations of
springs and air-springs you can alter
the characteristic of the fork. For
example, a soft spring in combination
with a small air-spring (high oil level)
makes the fork progressive, see
“Fine-tuning the bike“.

Setting up the bike
A
We would like to give you some basic
guidelines how to set up your bike
with your new Öhlins front fork.
However, remember that the front
fork is just one part of your motorcycle and to get the fork to work properly the whole motorcycle has to be
set up according to standards.
Please follow the instructions below, see also your bike’s work shop
manual.
Your new front fork is dialled-in to
the Öhlins recommended settings for
your bike. The same goes for the rear
shock absorber if you are using an
Öhlins unit.
All settings are based on a bike and
a rider of normal weight.
Depending on your own and your
bike’s actual weight minor differ-
Put your bike on a stand. Arrange the
stand so that the rear wheel is off the
ground and the rear suspension fully
extended.
B
Measure the distance between the
rear wheel axle and a point near the
rear end of the seat, for example a
seat bolt, fig 4 distance A.
Make a note of the measurement.
C
Remove the stand. With the wheels
on the ground measure the distance
again, fig 4 distance B.
The difference of the two measurements is the static sag.

Checking sag and ride height.
Should you still experience excessive bottoming or that the bike feels
much to stiff and suspension travel is
not fully used, harder/softer than normal springs may be needed for the
track you are testing on.
Consult your Öhlins dealer for advice!
Fine-tuning the bike
Race dressed sit on the bike, straight
above the foot pegs, with the feet
barely touching the ground. Have
somebody to measure between the
same point as before, fig 4 distance C.
Learning how to use the adjusters will
take time but you quickly appreciate
them once you know the tricks. Even
the specialists sometimes need a
specialist!
With the adjusters you optimize the
suspension for your, riding style and
the track you are competing on.
The same basic guide lines go for
both the front fork and the rear shock
absorber.
Too much compression damping
will give you a harsh ride as your bike
“jumps“ along the track.
With too much rebound damping
your bike will have difficulties with
several bumps in a row. The suspension will not extend fast enough between bumps, your bike will ride
lower and lower and eventually the
suspension will bottom!
Race dressed sit on the bike, straight
above the foot pegs, with the feet
barely touching the ground.
Have somebody to measure between
the same point as before, fig 4 distance C.
C
External adjusters
The difference of the two measurements should be 100 ± 10 mm.
C
Do not try to alter ride height by altering the spring preload.
A new spring is needed.
On the Öhlins front fork the adjusters
are bleed valves, totally separated
from each other.
The compression bleed valve controls the flow in the cartridge tube
during the compression stroke, the
rebound bleed valve the flow during
the rebound stroke.
F
Checking rear ride height
A
Adjust the spring preload according
to your rear shock mounting instruction.
Checking front ride height
A
Put your bike on a stand.
Arrange the stand so that the front
wheel is off the ground and the front
fork fully extended.
Measure the distance between the
upper fork crown and the front wheel
axle, fig 4 distance A. Make a note of
the measurement.
B
The difference of the two measurements should be 50 ± 10 mm.
CAUTION!
Do not try to alter ride height by altering the spring preload.
New springs are needed.
Put your bike on a stand. Arrange the
stand so that the rear wheel is off the
ground and the rear suspension fully
extended.
Measure the distance between the
rear wheel axle and a point near the
rear end of the seat, for example a
seat bolt, fig 4 distance A.
Make a note of the measurement.
B
CAUTION!
D
A stiffer spring is needed if the
difference is more than 110 mm.
A softer spring if the difference is less
than 90 mm.
Consult your Öhlins dealer for a spring
of the right rate.
CAUTION!
Using too much force when closing
the adjusters will destroy important
sealing surfaces.

Both the adjusters have a normal
right-hand thread.
Click position zero (0) is when the
adjusters are turned clockwise to fully
closed.
The adjustment range, from fully
closed until maximum open valve
(anticlockwise), is 20 clicks.
In order not to click in the wrong
direction; always first close the adjuster, then dial-in the new setting.
Making adjustments
To make improvements using the
adjusters, it is important to understand
the function of the front fork and the
shock absorber and through testing
learn how they effect the handling of
your bike.
Make sure that you have the correct
springs and the correct spring preload
before making any adjustments. And
always start with the Öhlins recommended settings:
NOTE!
See mounting instruction for
recommended settings.
NOTE!
Higher click numbers give less damping force.
When making adjustments; keep
notes, make adjustments one at a
time... and in small steps.
The adjusters should normally not
be adjusted in steps of more than 2
clicks at a time and not outside the
usable click range.
When you think you have made an
improvement, go back to what you
started with and double check to be
sure. Pay attention to changes in
conditions like tires, temperatures
etc.
6
In general, compression damping
changes should be used to influence
the bike’s stability and response,
while rebound damping changes
should be used to influence comfort
and traction.
When you need more damping
force, you should mainly try to increase compression damping and
use as little rebound damping as possible.
This usually means that you gain
comfort and performance in handling.
Oil level adjustment
As the air trapped between the oil
and the top nut acts as an air-spring,
a change in oil level will effect the
damping forces. Not in the early
stage of fork travel, but a great deal
in the later stage.
A general description of how the oil
level/air-spring effects the damping
forces are shown in fig 5.
The air-spring gives the Öhlins
USD fork a progressive spring rate,
preventing it from bottoming out hard.
By using different combinations of
springs and oil levels/air-springs you
can alter the characteristic of the fork
and tailor it to suit different tracks and
conditions.
CAUTION!
The oil level must be the same in
both front fork legs.
Riding a bike with different oil levels
will cause instability.
When the oil level is raised:
The air-spring in the later half of
travel is strong, and thus the front
fork hard.
When the oil level is lowered:
The air-spring in the later half stage
of travel is soft, and thus the front
fork soft.
CAUTION!
Adjust the oil level with the fork leg
fully compressed and no preload
washer nor spring installed.
NOTE!
See mounting instruction for
recommended oil level.
The oil level is measured from the
top of the outer leg, with the top nut
off, see fig 6.
A change in oil level should be
made in small steps. We recommend
a change of 5 mm at a time and not
outside the range of 80-130 mm.
Maintenance
Telescopic front forks depend on a
smooth, friction free action.
Make sure your forks are regularly
serviced.
Do not use strong solvents, such
as brake cleaner, to clean the front
forks. This will dry out the seals and
the steel tubes and cause friction or
leakage.
After every race:
Clean externally and spray with an
all-purpose oil after washing with
detergent.
Check externally for damage.
Put a little Öhlins green grease
(148-01) on the steel tubes and
work it in by pushing the fork up
and down.
Every 20 hours:
Dismantle the fork and check all
parts for wear and damage, replace
if necessary, see page 10.
