The latest Road & Track front fork cartridge kit from Ohlins is based on the wildly popular and successful NIX 30. The suspension experts at Ohlins have fine-tuned their design to be optimal for lightweight sport and street bikes, just like the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Z650. Crafted from the years of knowledge from WSBK, Moto2, Moto3, and MotoGP, Ohlins has developed a cartridge that will improve the handling, comfort, bump absorption, cornering, braking, and performance of your Ninja. The newly designed 22mm piston and accompanying 8mm piston shaft provide ample performance and stable damping characteristics while allowing for less negative feedback on the back side of the piston, virtually eliminating cavitation that is commonly found on other fork cartridge brands.

The advanced design of Ohlins' NIX series features compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right leg, allowing for more precise function and increased stability. Preload adjustments points are on the fork tops for quick and easy settings changes, letting you spend more time riding and less time in the garage. The NIX 22 Cartridge Kit has been rigorously tested and tailor-made for the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Z650, perfectly suiting the individual requirements and characteristics that it brings to the table.

Ohlins Springs: If you are purchasing springs with this kit, the correct spring rate will be chosen for you by the experts at Ohlins based on your weight (body weight only, do NOT include the weight of riding gear) and riding style.

OEM Springs: OEM springs are NOT compatible with this Ohlins Cartridge Kit.

Installation: This fork cartridge kit is easily installed after removing the standard cartridge kit; however, Ohlins always recommends having an authorized Ohlins center perform the installation.

Oil Note: Ohlins recommends the use of Ohlins suspension fluid R&T 01309-01 for this product. Ohlins designs each suspension product using their suspension fluid, therefore it is highly recommended that you ONLY use Ohlins suspension oil in your Ohlins product. The use of non-Ohlins fluid may negatively affect the damping characteristics of your suspension.

The actual product may differ slightly from the product shown, as Ohlins designs each product to be bike specific.
