The money is reasonable when compared to the medical co-pay that comes from getting donkey kicked by the shitty stock shock....

This option is the ultimate in suspension but comes with a matching price tag and you'll no longer have the hydraulic preload adjuster.
So, just to clarify for us Adventure owners, the SE kit is a complete swap out in the rear and a gutting of the forks which takes away the preload adjuster in favor of the set-it-forget-it Ohlins caps, correct? I generally don't mess with my pre-load once I find what I'm looking for so a pre-load adjuster knob isn't something critical for me. It's not like a steering damper or something anyway... Once a guy finds his on-road and off-road settings it's pretty easy to adjust to where you need with an Allen key anyway.

Sure, that price is above what SS or others charge, but 277mm is epic and also tameable (below a staggering 300mm that a pro racer would like to have, but not exactly friendly to a travelling bike). I gotta say, the price for a full kit is reasonable in my eyes for what it is and what it offers. Now that I have that little bit of clarification I think my shit-wad will go to a full kit on my 13 Adv. I'll have to figure out some spring rates and get a few fork tools for the new setup, but man... Now I'm drooling!!! (Any chance the rear spring can be color matched? The 13's are white with an orange frame... I can probably get it powdercoated when my 450 frame goes in after Baja though)

That's correct. But to make things easier we include a Penski style shock collar with the SER shock that's fast and easy to adjust. It's just one of many points on the Öhlins that we needed to beef up to handle the abuse of the big KTM's...

Now they look suspiciously similar to the SM/SMT forks.

We're in the final stage of production and should have complete kits in two weeks time.

It's a full suspension package that includes modifying your forks to accept the Öhlins TTX cartridges, along with a complete replacement Öhlins TTX44 shock out back. Travel jumps from 220mm to 266mm.

You're more than welcome! I love watching fellow riders unlock the potential of these bikes and discover a whole new riding experience! That's a great looking skid plate... what's the deal with it and where's your oil tank?

How did you get Ohlins USA to do that? I have been after Matt for 2 years to make something for the TEX. Last I heard was fall this year.

Öhlins doesn't have a product that's suitable for our bikes. The only products they build are either street oriented like the TTx36 product, or not built to handle the extreme loads that a 500lbs dirt bike can generate when pushed hard.

My company modifies Öhlins suspension to fit custom applications such as the KTM Adventure and SER. We also beef them up to handle extreme loads. We're not just about quality suspension... we also build products designed to outlast the bike.
