Default Aftermarket TTX versus 675R TTX

How different is the TTX purchased from an authorized Ohlins dealer than the oem 675 R TTX shock?

If it were me, I would get the ttx offered by Dan Kyle, or other reputable dealer, for a couple of reasons.

1 He can valve it custom for you cost included.
2 I think you can get the remote hydraulic preload adjuster, vs the stock 675r collar adjusters.

3 Unless you find a used 675r ttx on ebay or other, it will be more expensive than Dan's TTX. I have seen used 675r ttx on ebay for around $1,000 usd I think.

Good luck,

Mark

There is one from a 675R on eBay now for $750.

I know in the Ducati world, the Ohlins forks that comes with the "S" models are not the same as the true Road and Track forks. I am not sure if Triumph does the same.

I may just save my money a little longer and spring for the TTX type 2 rather than buying a used one from the second hand market.

It's like a set of goodyear tires used as oem equipment vs the set you buy from your tire supplier. Same name and model, much different performance. Don't think for a second that the oem ohlins on the 675R have the precision of the ones you buy from ohlins vendor.

From what I have read here the stuff on the R is the same and wasn't dumbed down for the street. Is there any proof of this in either direction?

I just asked ohlins a little while ago this same question, and this is what I got back. I also asked the difference between the mk1 and mk2.

Hello Jeff. Thank you for your email.
The new Öhlins MKII shocks have different body tube material & piston & some other small upgrades to the design. These changes were implemented after gathering data from World SBK race testing, etc.
The rear shocks for the Daytona 675 are listed in the aftermarket Öhlins catalog as follows:
TR 889 2006-11 Triumph 675: TTX MKI: $1456.55, in stock
TR 039 2006-12 Triumph 675: TTX MKII: $1456.55, not in stock yet
The new Triumph 675R motorcycle will most likely use the ‘TR 889’ model. The only way to verify the fitment is by researching the serial number located at the top of the OEM shock. If you can get the serial number off the top of the shock we will check it out for you.
The TR 889 & TR 039 have a hydraulic preload adjuster system. If the OEM shock does not have a hydraulic preload adjuster installed we can add one. Typical cost: $478.12 + installation labor.
The TR 889 & TR 039 both have a separate ride-height adjustment at the bottom of the shock.
Please call or return email with any questions.
Thank you, Jerry

It looks like the 675r shock is the same as the mk1. But may not have the hydraulic preload adjuster.

The shock on the 675R doesn't have ride height adjustment either. Still a lot of shock for the $$ though!

I dunno how much better or worse they are, but Jason DiSalvo broke the track record at Jennings (for stock production bikes), on a 675R. They must be pretty good. :D

Yea, stock is the MK1. MK2 is hard to get right now. They made improvements, but probably nothing that us mortals would notice.

Yea, no height adjuster on the TTX. Strange.

Either way, the shock should be revalued based on your weight and usage. The front forks in particular need valve work.
