NC Ohlins installation sanity check

Post by StevenL773 »

I feel like a goober for asking, but the number of spacers in the rear shock mount just doesn't seem right. I've installed per the instructions, but with the (1) factory washer then the (2) included 4.5mm washer and then the (3) bushing spacer it seems that the shock mount is sitting 1/2 way down the shaft. I can only assume that the washers and the bushing ensures that the shocks weight is centered on the shaft, but it just doesn't look right! Help ease my mind, please and thank you!

Thank you for the response.

It looks like you have everything except the standard washer outlined in diagram 2 listed on the Ohlins MAS MI30 Rear Mounting instructions. Did I misunderstand that washer was only shown for demo purposes?

Thanks again for the response.

To confirm: Are we to not use the standard washer then?

I thought of turning a longer version of the spacer that would go all the way through the ohlins shock mounting holes to fully support it.
