Here we go again... Öhlins fork for yz 360
« on: October 13, 2017, 08:00:19 AM »
O Boy,

Next project, 1989 Yz360 with ohlins upside down front and ohlins shock. Magnesium rear hub and front under negoatation.

Lot of work to come, cases are destroyed, the crank is used as sledge hammer, and so on !

hopefully ready next spring (Europe spring, now we have rain like shi...)

  Sounds like a good project with some top end components


  Look forward to seeing how it progresses

Sounds great looking forward to the finished product. I have an ohlins shock on my Yz250wr, it is incredible.

   Hi there mate! I seem to recall that one of our Scandinavian members had built a YZ360 as original as could be done. Was it you? I mean is this thread about fitting time correct ohlins suspension on an already built (although destroyed obviously) YZ360, or a complete rebuild/restoration/modding project? Either way, I'll be keeping an eye on it, so keep us updated. By all accounts the big bore kit was performing greatly!



   Cheers, Fanis

Hi All,

Timo R made YZ360 about year ago. We have known each other since 1988 and even raced together in squad race, with 3 member team.
He has build very beutifull bikes. His special intrest is big bore 2-strokes. Check his posts !
