Ohlins Forks for R6?

There was a post in the classifieds a while back for a set of ohlins race forks, but the guy disappeared. After looking around online, I have not been able to find any information on ohlins forks for the R6. Does anyone know where I can find them for sale?

Re: Ohlins Forks for R6?

One guy that I know personally (I bought my bike from him) has a set for sale... He's on here, you might even be talking about his thread.. They're for 3rd gens. If you'd like I can have him stop by here again for you.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

÷hlins does not manufacture R&T forks for the R6, or any other Japanese 600 for that matter.

What ÷hlins does offer is a R&T cartridge system, which internally, is identical to the comeplete R&T forks that are available for liter bikes. I'd look to Hard Racing for the best deal.

Re: Ohlins Forks for R6?

That sucks and doesn't make any sense. I have a TTX shock so why don't they make forks? So with the cartridge stuff it just replaces the stock parts inside my forks?

I do trackdays now so its not about the looks but the ohlins forks look bad ass with the gold fork bottoms.

If you want the performance and look, you can always build a set on your own:

Re: Ohlins Forks for R6?

GP Star's Ohlins cartridge Fork conversion is very neat, and looks very close to an R&T fork, would I be right in saying you either used the YEC racekit fork bottoms and powder coated them silver?...also fitted aftermarket adjusters or anodised the originals?
Another alternative that is worth considering is Ohlins revalve kit (only released in 2009) I have this setup on mine with good quality oil and lighter springs, the revalve kit disables part of the high\low compression circuit as Ohlins consider it un-necessary aparantly, BUT its amazing value for money, my front end is now superb

Ohlins 2009 spec TTX rear shock with custom spring
Ohlins 2009 spec valved and custom sprung front forks
Ohlins steering damper
Harris steering damper fitting kit
Akrapovic full race stainless steel system
CRG clutch lever
Brembo M4 monoblock radial calipers
Brembo RCS19 master cylinder
Power Commander V
PC autotune
DynoJet quickshifter
Gilles rearsets in gold
JHS custom remap with auto tune fuel trims
Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa BSB tyres
K&N filter
Graves AIS smog block off plates
true 117bhp at the rear wheel

Holy shiat!

They look just like full ohlins forks, but those ARE stock forks right?

My buddy just texted back, apparently he sold his forks.
