From my source (shared with you, TNC, by PM), the Yamaha at Dakar was a collaborative effort with Ohlins, with ". . . a small high speed hydraulic pump above the gearbox then connect[ed] to the gearbox sprocket and [with] an efficient high speed motor on the front wheel together with a reduction gear," according to Ohlins.

This information from my riding partner, Hans.
