Ohlins car shock absorber for Honda S2000 Manual

Ohlins car shock absorber for Honda S2000 Introduction

All of Öhlins advanced suspension products are adapted to the brand and model. This means that length, travel springaction and damping characteristics, are tested individually just for the motorcycle that you have decided to fit with Öhlins suspension.

Before installation

Öhlins Racing AB can not be held responsible for any damage whatsoever to shock absorber or vehicle, or injury to persons, if the instructions for fitting and maintenance are not followed exactly. Similarly, the warranty will become null and void if the instructions are not adhered to.

Ohlins car shock absorber for Honda S2000 Design

Öhlins car shock absorbers are based on Öhlins successful application of the ”de Carbon” concept. In short, that means that the damping oil is put under gas pressure, and separated from the gas by a floating piston. The de Carbon concept has many advantages. It prevents the risk of cavitation, that can wear out internal components and cause inconsistent damping. It eliminates aeration of the damping oil, which also causes inconsistent damping. It improves the cooling, because the oil is in direct contact with the outer tubing. It gives more consistent damping, regardless of the shock absorber’s working temperature, and it makes the shock absorber last longer. The shock absorber reservoir, connected directly to the shock absorber body is in fact an ”extension” of the main body which contributes to the improved cooling. The reservoir contains the floating piston and the gas that pressurises the damping oil. The oil is forced through a base plate reinforcing the damping.

At low shaft speeds the damping oil is forced through an adjustable bleed valve in the main piston. The valve affects mainly rebound damping and has only a small effect on compression damping. The adjuster is connected to the valve via an aluminium shaft, that runs inside the piston shaft. When the temperature in the shock increases the aluminium shaft extends, thereby closing the bleed valve gradually. This diminishes the influence of the oil viscosity changes due to temperature, keeping the flow through the valve virtually the same, regardless of temperature. At higher shaft speeds the damping forces are primarily controlled by the main piston and its compression- and rebound shim stacks. By changing the numbers, diameter, and thickness of the shims in the stack and by using different jets in the valves, your Öhlins shock absorbers are tailor-made for just your car.
