My 10 S3 Ultimate Mod caution Ohlins Porn inside

Well first of all special thanks to Martin_R for this because he told me how to make this project doable... big thanks Martin

Now the story... well quick and short, i had a good chance to keep a pair of ducati desmosedici RR gas charged Ohlins forks at a real steal price... the kind of price you cant turn your back to, i really had not any real necessity of this upgrade but also felt that the front suspension was not the best ... and this kind of performance and beauty sold me.Not to mention i already had the back gas shock and the steering damper from ohlins and these alone made a massive difference on bike handling. Dont get fooled these are some exclusive forks. I believe i never saw any speed triple whit this kind of suspension except the race comp turbo charged S3.
here are the forks:
in the ducati desmo RR



and mine:

But this wasnt a walk in the park so much for a quick plug&play

i had to open up both yokes 0,5mm all around in order to fit these beauties in perfection. also had to make a custom axle to fit the triumph wheel into the ducati fork retaining system.
Not to mention i had a major problem whit the brake retaining system since the disk fit the wheel too far in to center the disk inside the caliper. So i had to add custom 2mm spacers between the disk and wheel, in order to the disks stay at the center of the caliper between pads.
Almost forgot that i also had to open 0,5mm all around the ring of the steering damper retaining system so it could grab the fork and dont damage it.
Last but not least got a bargain price on a streetfighter/1098 front mudguard to fit these forks and protect them correctly.

wow what a jorney this been, i wont be doing this kind of adventures any time soon, almost gave up a couple of times, but it was too late for that, and once the bike was ready it was a joy to see, and ride. the most important thing was to see if in the end it was worth it, and the difference in handling of the bike was from night to day, it really makes a difference in precision of cornering and damping quality... its in another league.

Its been raining here almost every day since i finished this mod, i didnt had the chance to take some good pictures, but here are a couple taken whit the phone to show you a preview of the final result. Hope you all like it. i Love this bike and i doubt i will ever sell it.

i guess i can call this is My 2010 Speed Triple R









comments, opinions all welcome
regards to all

You must be a little nuts though

not even half of that lets say around 2k, but the forks new are around 8k i think, these are specially made for ducati so ohlins doesnt sell them directly, you need to buy them from ducati.
these ones came out of a desmosedici that had 300miles on them and where replaced for the new 2012 fgr200, so i got my chance to keep these almost in new condition

thanks guys, going to post more pictures in the next days

Have to agree, the cowls on your bike look far better than the stamped beer can ones or the unfinished look of no cowls.
