Öhlins Cartridge Kit for MX STX 22. Öhlins Racing AB - The Story It was the 1970’s, a young man named Kenth Öhlin spent most of his spare time pursuing his favourite sport: motocross. Being a careful observer, Kenth’s attention was continously drawn to one speciﬁc detail -motocross bikes had more engine power than their suspension could handle. It was not long before Kenth realised that better performance could be achieved by improved wheel suspension. Öhlins Racing was established in 1976, and just two years later the company won its ﬁrst World Championship title. Despite being in the business sinced 1976, the search for perfection and new functions is still the main focus of the company.

When the cartridge kit is brand new, the friction in different components can be perceived as high. The friction level will drop noticeably when the front fork has experienceda number of heat cycles due to riding. This new levelof friction is to be considered optimal for the front fork performance. Do not be alarmed if, when brand new, the front fork is perceived to move slowly if you push the front of the bike.

Fork springs may differ in length. Thus we recommend to measure the preload on eachfork leg and install the required preload washers to get the correct measure. Preload less than 0 mm will make the fork springs loose when the front wheel is off the ground, which can increase the risk of wearinside the fork. For recommended preload refer to the setup data in the Mounting Instructions or contact an Authorized Öhlins Service Center for advice. To adjust the preload you add or remove preload spacers below the spring.
Try to decrease ﬂuid volume in steps of 10 ml to gain comfort until harshness no longer occurs or bottoming resistance gets too low. Additionally, less ﬂuid volume will let the fork dive longer into the stroke during braking before additional damping effect stiffens up the stroke,see position C in the ﬁgure below. Very fast riders may appreciate the additional damping from a higher ﬂuid volume on all parts of the track, as this keeps the fork runninghigher in the stroke, withstanding their additional forces due to their higher velocities. For recommended ﬂuid and ﬂuid volume refer to the setup data in the Mounting Instructions or contact an Authorized Öhlins Service Center for advice.
