JHS Racing feature in a number of 44Teeth videos on YouTube and journalist Al Fagan has a close relationship with them it seems.

I am curious where you set the lock nut on the damper rod.  Did you thread it all the way to the bottom or did you set it to Triumph specs?  The instructions never say where to set it.

Hi Harsh, I did as per instructions & turned the rebound & comp. in 4 turns which then sets the height on the damper rod then turned the locknut up to it.   Regards Bob

I wasn't referring to the number of turns you put on the allen screw in the fork cap that adjust the rebound and compression.  I am referring to the amount of thread left above the lock nut.  The Andreani instructions never mention this.

Hi What I was trying to say was that after putting 4 turns on the comp and rebound I screwed the top cap on lightly until it stopped, then tightened the locknut.

Gotcha.  I did the same on mine and have full adjustment capabilities.

I still wonder about the setting as depicted in the picture I posted from the manual.  Maybe you can set yours like the manual and see if you can achieve some rebound and compression abilities.  I would certainly be interested to know if that works for you.

Hi Harsh, the picture from manual referring to the OEM suspension settings , where the rod lock-nut position apply to the spring preload value, so it has nothing common  with Andreani cartridges.  Regarding  "phase of 4 turns" , OldGuy description should be the official one.

I did my own installation today , sooo easy :-) especially  the second one;  spring rate delivered is 8.3( too stiff for 85 kg  rider as per google search )  , air chamber 100mm as per sticker what make perfect 500ml of Ohlins superexpensive oil per fork . R/C dumping adjusters works as expected, most noticeable at the end of its range .

OEM forks and cartridges condition is another story - one looks OK, oil level about 130mm , yellowish, clear ( just 4K km on the odometer ) cartridge works smooth, still too much damping on compression and not enough on rebound for my taste but acceptable - oil level/density may change some parameters.

second one ... red, dense, sticky oil  about 180ml in capacity only, strange smell, do not mix easily with  other oil (?!)  cartridge works like a fully closed on compression with no rebound damping at all, I have no clue wtf  :005: Reported to the dealer, his more confused than me at this moment ;obviously the fork would be exchange on guaranty if I need to , so...

before  you spend a money on new cartridges get a chance to save it and check what you get ;-)  :172:

Hawk!
