    NOS Ohlins rear shock, never mounted

    ************* SOLD ***********************


    Me: A sexy scandanavian who's not adverse to being a little shocking.
    You: That master builder with the vision to convert a CBwhatever to a monoshock frame

    Together we can make that EXIF worthy cafe racer shine. I've spent my life sitting on a shelf, locked up in a cabinet, just waiting for someone like you! I need you to give me a home, you need me to separate yourself from the typical shop rats who use Chinese wannabe parts. Don't be that guy!

    Come on, take a chance. Let's make this happen! YOLO!

    Me in my younger days when I was still shiny and new(ish)





    Me currently. A little dustier but still unused.


    But seriously folks, this is an NOS shock from a Cannondale dirtbike. Yes, it's from Mid Ohio back in, what was it... 2005? I never got around to building that off road Monster and likely never will. Now if I had ponied up and bought the forks too when I had the chance, then maybe... but I didn't. So here we are.

    If you're going to be converting that frame over to a monoshock you may as well build it around a nice shock. This one is about 15" eye to eye.

    SOLD including shipping in the USA. How can you go wrong? Sorry, but I can't give you any details on spring rates or damping or valving or shim stacks or what it would take to make it fit that 125 enduro that's stashed outside your grandpa's pole barn...

    That almost looks like it would go straight onto a BMW K bike.
    Should be able to research the spring rate by that # no?

    excellent fair price.

    Looks like the 698 is an Ohlins part number for a 230mm length spring.
    The -34 is another part number for a 100nm spring rate

    Really weird those guys...

    Number after L is likely just a batch number.

    K bike 2v monolevers use 13.75" I think. 4V k bike monos use something closer to 15.13", and the Paralevers use one that is longer by like 1". My R80 mono lever uses 16.14" (410mm).

    Honestly Iwish you had 2 of them because at 15" they would be perfect for my quasi enduro sportster.

    sweet dampers for sure
    there arises a turd in the punch bowelissue when trying to pair up such shocks
    see the godamm oem bike makers put in the desire to have the piggyback ressi NOT be inline with the body/cylinder end mounting eye
    they all have good reasons but makes it almost impossible to find them with a straight configuration
    which is needed in twinshock app,or look goofy and even can be a clearance issue
    some white power shocks are though and they are a bit lighter 2000or so ktm sx 65cc mxer i think
    mainly i just like typing the moniker white power
    wrong image cant delete sorry desmo

    Well he's not wrong... the offset res does make pairing them up a problem.

    In any case, it sold for $175 on eBay, but thanks for playing!

    I need some White Power forks for my F650. RMX me thinks, or was it YZF. I think they're all in Australia.

    Good on the sale.
