Damper Maintenance and Servicing

Preventive maintenance and regular inspection reduces the risk of functional disturbance. If there is any need for additional service, please contact
an authorized Öhlins workshop.

Just as the oil in an engine needs to be replaced as part of a maintenance plan the oil in a damper should be exchanged because as with the engine oil it deals with extreme pressure, temperatures and friction.

With each stroke of travel, the smooth surfaces inside your suspension pick up microscopic particles of debris. Those particles are drawn into the oil and over time contaminate the interior passageways and valves. As the hours of use accumulate, so does the contamination. Your high-performance suspension will begin to lose its ability to generate damping forces.

To keep your suspension performing at the highest level, frequent servicing is necessary.

At Öhlins DTC close to the Nürburgring suspension is serviced to the manufacturer’s desired quality level. In addition, there is a network of official Öhlins Service Centers that offer service and repair to the same quality standards.

Cleaning
Clean the shock absorber externally with a soft detergent. Use compressed air. Be careful that all dirt is removed. Lift the bump rubber and
clean the area below.

Keep the shock absorber clean and spray it with oil (WD40, CRC 5-56 or equivalent) after washing. Wipe off excess oil with a cloth. Some areas of the shock absorber
are treated with a special surface treatment such as Teflon coating. Do not use strong chemicals, i.e. strong solvents or wheel cleaning detergents,
and/or a hard brush for cleaning as it may discolour and change the appearance of the shocks surface treatments.

Inspection
1. Check ball joints for possible excessive play or stiction.
2. Check the piston shaft for leakage and damage.
3. Check the shock absorber body for external damage.
4. Check the reservoir for external damage that can restrict the floating piston from moving freely.
5. Check for excessive wear of rubber components.
6. Check the attachment points of the shock absorber to the vehicle.

Please Note

Servicing of products is in relation to exchanging seals and oil/gas only. All other items (for example: bushes, stickers) are treated as separate to the servicing work and must be requested as new at time of placing the service order. In case the product is heavily contaminated and needs to be cleaned to perform the service it will be cleaned in our ultra-sound cleaning device and a charge will be added to your assignment.
