Maybe somebody has changed the fork to Ohlins and can write some technicals facts.

I am searching for a Ohlins fork and the clamps for the BMW G450X. Maybe I also need the brake.

Thanks for answering.
The Ohlins TTX fork kit from Ohlins Sweden comes with new fork clamps and forks so that you can utilize stock front wheel.

However XTrig makes a fork clamp for WP forks and Speedbrain offers a works WP fork for the G450X utilizing the XTrig clamp and still use factory front wheel. BUT you can use KTM WPs or Ohlins/WP fork kits with the Xtrig clamps and you will have to use a KTM front wheel that is re-centered 2-3mm to the brake caliper/rotor side.

So you have many options and perhaps a Mod can move this thread to Thumpers or G450X mega thread, if you go for the later option since WP/Ohlins fork kits are cheaper and easier to find since KTM is so popular, You can also use KTM rear wheels on the G450X without any modifications, however you'll need KTM sprockets and rotors too. This is the exact set-up I have on my G450X
Just some dude on the internet,..
