Ohlins cartridge kit for k5 750 model number and workshop manual?

I recently got this forks from k5 r750 with ohlins internals. hope someone on this section can help me..



I need to replace oil seal. So I need to service them. but I Only have suzuki service manual.

Is there anyone knows the model number for this cartridge kit? this internal for k5 750. (tubes are OEM showa only cartridges are ohlins)

I think something like FGK with some numbers. but I couldn't find on Ohlins official page.

It'd best that I can have workshop manual for this ohlins cartridge. Does anyone have the info??

You will at least need this from Ohlins, http://www.superbiketoystore.com/spo...Fcyf4AoduRwAggAs well as a good spring compressor, and a bleeding tool.

As well as you need to contact Ohlins for the correct fluid for the forks, DO NOT use regular fork oil!
Also ask what to set the fluid at in the forks, Oem specs are not correct for the cartridges!

thanks! for advice. I figured stock manual won't really work in this. I want to learn how to do it by myself. if it's way beyond my knowledge and skill, I'll bring this forks to the mechanic that I know who is really capable of. but still I need to provide him a precise specification and information to do the job right.


I sent the Email to Ohlins distributor in USA. the country that I live doesn't have official ohlins distributor.

I wouldn't pay $94 for that tool!!

This one from Harbor Freight will work fine. Bear in mind they don't need to be super tight. The upper triple clamp will compress the tube enough.

before i bought it, I checked prvious owner has pretty same weight as i do.

and the country that i live, doesn't have official ohlins distributor anymore.

that's why I try to gather information what is necessary.
