Ohlins forks for 916

Me again, work is slow at the momment, plenty of time to think, I picked up a set of 1198SP Ohlins forks the other day and was intending to mount them to my 996, the only problem is that they have the radial mount caliper fork bottoms, I have seen some where in the forums that I would need a xx98 front wheel as the axle sizes and disc offset are different, does this sound correct? If anyone out has a set of Ohlins to suit the old 9xx front wheel, I would be happy to swap or maybe a xx98 front with discs?

Just get a set of the correct Ohlins. And while you're at it, try to find some R&T's--they're a lot better than the stock "Ducati Ohlins". I don't know why people insist on creating headaches for themselves.

You seem to have a wealth of knowledge Nine16

Maybe you could tell me this, If I listed the bikes I have owned, such as my Deltek Rockhopper and my MX80...would it make me feel more,
  1. masculine
  2. superior
  3. special
  4. or just plain foolish
Surely you could answer this?

I have 1198s Ohlins on my 916, you need to use the 1198 axle (although the size is the same) as the fitment in the forks is different.

You can use a 916 wheel but you need 15mm offset discs (748R, 998R) or you can use a 999/ 1198 wheel & disc setup but this way you lose the mechanical speedo option.

Obviously you'll need radial calipers and new brake lines but the 916 front fender will fit.

Here's a pic of mine;

I'm thinking about listing my Deckson Daredevil and my Honda SL70 in my previously owned bikes list.

Nice work Desmo, exactly the imformation I was looking for, good to see that there are some people out there that can pass on their knowledge without belittling the less experienced.

thanks

It's not belittling. It's passing on the knowledge that's it's far easier to simply use the right forks for the application instead of tracking down a chain of parts and/or winding up with no speedometer. But anything can be done. Carry on.

OK, for the average rider, is there any real world benefit in changing the forks?

No real benefit in most of the things we put on our bikes, it is a matter of personal taste I guess, a lot people whack these anodized frame plug dodads on...I can't stand them! But hey, that's just me, I also want to grab every kid I see with their jocks sticking out of their pants and reef em over their pin cushioned heads.....funny how personal likes/dislike change as we get older?
