    Ohlins guide sheet for 2014 R

    Hi guys. The newer triples came with a setup guide for Ohlins settings I believe. As I bought a used 2014 I was wondering if that one was supposed to too? Alternatively can someone point me to that sheet? Iíd like a start point before I start fiddling.

    Here are the settings recommended by Sport Rider magazine when they tested the 2012 S3R which has the same suspension as our 2014s. Read across as Fork Preload, Rebound, Compression...Shock Preload, Rebound, Compression...rebound and compression are clicks out from full soft.
    Speed Triple R ('12) 8/12 4.5 turns out 12 clicks out 20 clicks out 3mm thread showing 9 clicks out 17 clicks out

    Thank you, very good of you.

    Do I understand correctly that when the adjusters are turned fully clockwise to stop that makes the suspension as hard as it can go then you turn the adjusters and fork screws anti clockwise to soften up?

    So all the way in (clockwise) is hard and all the way out (anti-clockwise ) is soft??

    Yes. The manual only goes as far as the general stuff, no specific section about the suspension.

    I like to reset the suspension back to factory so I have a starting point. Otherwise Iíll just make it full hard front and rear and work from there.

    Sorry for the format...I took a picture of the page with the settings, but couldn't seem to get it posted here.

    Thatís not a problem thank you for trying. I understood your explanation of settings application. There may be a variation in manuals based on us or European models. Iím guessing.
    I have plenty of time to experiment as itís winter in the uk now and the weather is truly awful and my bike is now garaged.
