not unusual and is in no way detrimental to the shock absorber.
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 80
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
“over-landing“ and in big bumps.
Your new Öhlins USD front fork has
aluminium outer legs and 46 mm
steel inner legs, with a polished surface for lowest possible friction.
The legs also feature a completely
new bushing design with 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 compressionand rebound damping.
The compression adjuster is lo-
Mounting instructions
cated 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“.
Marking
All Öhlins front forks are marked. You
will find the part number on the inside of the fork bottom.
Your Öhlins front fork has the following marking:
FG 012 GasGas
WARNING
1. It is advisable to have an Öhlins
dealer or a qualified mechanic to
fit your front fork kit.
2. To install the kit you need your
motorcycle’s work shop manual.
3. When working on your motorcycle, support it securely so it does
not fall over.
The Öhlins front fork is designed to
fit your bike’s standard triple clamps
and to use the standard brake components and wheel.
A
Put your bike on a stand and remove
the front wheel, the front brake components and the fork legs from the
bike according to the work shop
manual.
CAUTION!
1. The outer legs, both left and right,
should be adjusted evenly in the
fork crown.
2. The Öhlins fork legs feature
grooves on top of the outer fork legs
to make adjustment of the fork
height easier. The distance between
the grooves is 4 mm.
Recommended settings
The front fork in your kit is adjusted
to the Öhlins recommended setting
for your bike, see “Making adjustments“. We advise you to use this
as your start setting.
B
Fit the Öhlins front fork legs. For recommended front fork mounting
height see mounting instruction.
C
Fit the brake components and the
front wheel according to the work
shop manual.

Setting up the bike
F
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 differences, between the Öhlins recommended settings and the settings
you achieve, may occur. Therefore,
it is always wise to start the setting
up by checking!
The sag effects not just only the suspension but also the rake of the front
fork and therefore the overall behaviour of the bike.
Spring preload is adjusted with spacers,
see “Preload adjustment“ on page 8.
Maximum allowed spring preload is
13 mm.
If you need to preload the springs more
than 13 mm, we recommend you to
change to a “stiffer“ spring.
Checking rear static sag
A
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.
NOTE!
Refer to mounting instruction for
more specific set-up data.

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!
Checking rear ride height
Fine-tuning the bike
A
Learning how to use the adjusters will
take time but you quickly appreciate
them once you know the tricks. Even
Put your bike on a stand. Arrange the
stand so that the rear wheel is off the
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 goes 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!
External adjusters
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.
CAUTION!
Using too much force when closing
the adjusters will destroy important
sealing surfaces.
Both the adjusters have a normal righthand 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.
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.
6
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.
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.
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 of travel
is soft, and thus the front fork soft.
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 90-130 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 (14801) 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.
