Ohlins Releases FKC 101 Fork Cartridge Kit for Harley Tourers

Ohlins FKC 101 Fork Cartridge Kit for Harley-Davidson FLH/FLT

Out of the bag and onto the Bagger, the Öhlins FKC 101 Fork Cartridge Kit introduces Öhlins’ high-quality, high-tech suspension heritage to the front-forks of world’s most-popular line of motorcycles: the FLH/FLT Harley-Davidson Touring Baggers.

This first-ever Bagger Fork Kit from Öhlins provides an incomparably balanced suspension package, never before available for H-D Touring motorcycles, when installed in conjuction with a set of Öhlins shocks.

As described by Tomas Andersson, Manager MC R&T Aftermarket at Öhlins Racing AB, “The goal with the FKC 101 project was to create a high-end cartridge damping system with great performance, to a reasonable price for the Harley-Davidson Touring front forks. The kit is the same concept we use for our hyper-sport front forks, but with a smaller piston. For this application we focused on vehicle control, and a smooth ride.”

The Öhlins FKC 101 Cartridge Kit features the high-end internal components of 8 mm steel shafts, aluminum damper tubes, and 25 mm pistons. The kit has NIX-type damping: one fork leg has compression only, while the other leg takes care of rebound only. By segregating compression from rebound, the NIX-type system maximizes the damping that’s available within the confined diameter of a fork leg.

The FKC 101 has no external adjustors due to FLH/FLT fork-leg mounting requirements. Optional spring rates are available for rider weights, preferences, and motorcycle use.

– 25 mm Pistons

– Compression Left Leg, Rebound Right Leg

– Aluminum Damping Tubes

– Alternative Spring Rates

– Improved feel, Increased Control

– MSRP: $1,000 (estimated)
