BMW R SERIES [ Oilhead ] shox and tings
« on: Apr 03, 2015, 13:05:47 »
Just a headsup - the newly developed BMW Oilhead shox are now in production, both eye-eye and eye-clevis.

Additionally we are working on developing an adjustable Telelever front wishbone and ditto rear Paralever strut.

Both items crop up continually over on the Beemer related forums. The idea of the front - is to be able to adjust [ shorten ] the unit by 10mm to 15mm to allow the steering to become sharper. The idea [ 10mm shorter ] has been around for years and is a very successful mod - especially for the slow steering R1100S. Some folk have played with 14mm, 15mm shorter and all sorts in between - but on each occassion the arm has been permanently altered. The shorter rear strut idea has also benn around for years - originally a GS strut was used [ readilly available - but expensive ! ]. So now e're playing with an adjustable rear strut that will allow some experimenting by owners to fine tune their ride.
