Default Öhlins on a Daytona/Street Triple....a quick guide

Alright....I have the quick recipe for an Ohlins damper on our beloved bike. Pretty simple:

1 Hyperpro 916 mount $219.95 directly from Hyperpro
1 Ohlins damper, with Ducati bracket price varies....I've seen them on Ebay as low as $370ish

With the traditional Ohlins bracket, I soon realized it would hit the tank.....



So I had to get an aftermarket, or different mount....this one by Ducabike...



After installing the Ohlins in that bracket, on the Hyperpro mount, this is what you get.





NOW, after having done it....I know that I shouldn't have drilled and tapped the top yoke Hyperpro bracket for M8. It was already drilled and tapped for M6X1.0. The Ohlins needed M8....but since the original Ohlins bracket didn't work, you can just leave the bracket the way it is. Since the Ducati, and Ducabike brackets accept M6.

You can call Hyperpro and order the bracket here.....

It's an expensive proposition to get the Ducabike bracket...

That's why you could save some $ by getting the Ducati Ohlins damper, with the mount that clears the tank.

After all this is said and done....you'd have a true Öhlins 916 style damper on your bike for about $600.....is it worth it? That's up to you to figure out

I put maybe 2 miles on her...there's about 20 clicks of adjustment on the Ohlins....I put her about right in the middle for starters. And the steering feel is different compared to OEM....that's for sure. It'll probably take some seat time before I'll have her dialed in to my liking. But thus far Not to mention the fact that I am swedish....and just HAD to have something swedish on my bike

Good news. Glad the mount worked out well for you. I'd love to do this over the summer.
By the way your Triumph is wicked sick.

sometimes it is more about the fun of making something fit and work properly despite the piece not being made as a direct fit.

also the unique-ness is a welcome change, too.
