Öhlins Front and Rear
« on: April 14, 2019, 09:09:37 PM »

My brother did the install on my 2016 CVO Streetglide today and I wish I had done it sooner. Man, what a different bike. Big thanks to Carole Burke from Texas, he is your man if you need to source öhlins suspension. Great price and excellent technical support after the sale.

I added the PM Forks since it was all apart.

Pretty sure I just saw this bike and post on Facebook a bit ago. Smarty actually spells his name without the Es at the end. Carol Burks

Sounds like it will be a much better ride. I have O's on the rear of mine and love the difference over the stock air shocks.

I realized I misspelled his name, fixed it on FB, thanks!

Hi Krispy. I have the very same bike and am seriously considering installing the same shocks. Any update a month later on ride quality? Hopefully you’v Had a chance to ride a little. Also, what does the “PM” refer to with the forks?  Thank you. Tom.

You are correct about that but I believe Tom was referring to KRISPY's comment where PM in this case meant Performance Machine concerning his new front forks... ;D

The ride continies to amaze me. Almost feela better everytime I ride. Just got back from a weekend of riding the country roads around Gainesville and Ocala, Florida and the bike handled amazingly, like it was on rails but pluah at the same time. Worth evey penny.

I have same shocks on both of my bikes and ride will get better for about the first 1500 miles as they break in. Great shocks!

I installed some weeks ago the Ohlins cartridge FKC 102 on the front of my King and the Ohlins shocks HD 772 on the back. I'm totally excited.
The driving behavior has improved enormously.
