ohlins install

I am having issues installing the reservoir as described. I think the reservoir line comes down too straight from the shock. Can i adjust this without jacking things up? just loosen it?

I have sold over a hundred of the HO-201 and have never heard of this before now so I am hoping it is something simple. You cannot loosen the banjo bolt without losing nitrogen pressure and likely a fair amount of oil in the process.

I will give it another shot tonight and see if i can run the line differently. Would be helpful to see a picture of one installed but cant seem to find one, other than the install guide.

Thanks

Not sure if this helps; here's mine. Can't see the angle of the line on the shock, though.

Dug up one more old pic. I think the angle of the fitting was the same on my shock.

Good news- this was me. The install pics show the line fitting in the plastic tray like the OEM shock- this doesnt work.



Huge Thanks all for sending the pictures- big help.

The reservoir on my Ohlins sits in the same location as the stock reservoir, you just have to enlarge the hole so the end can poke through

Not to answer for the OP, but his looks like mine did. The reservoir is in the stock location. The problem that I think we both had was getting the hose to run in the same channel that the stock hose ran. My bike is long gone, so doesn't matter, but I'd be curious to see a setup where it does. Did that allow you to face the sticker out so it can be seen?

That was the issue. I was thinking the line should naturally lay the same way as the original, which seems to be the case in the diagram.

Neither the reservoir nor the Preload show the Ohlins sticker facing out, preload i would have had to twist it 180 to get it visible. Oh well.

You would have to release the Ni pressure in the reservoir, loosen the fitting just enough to let it swivel and then recharge the Ni.
Thinking of doing that myself actually.

Thanks. Looks like I should have asked when I was doing mine! I know I did it that way for a reason, but it's been several years.
