Genuine Ohlins Factory Updated/Upgraded Gold End Caps for the 1978-1985 Ohlins Rear Twin Shocks Seal Heads.
NOTE: This gold end cap must be used when re-building your rear shocks using the new style rebuild seal kit. In 1985 Ohlins stopped making the early style Seal heads (1978-1982) for the remote reservoir and early piggyback shocks. This new design used on the New 1983-1985 Husqvarna Ohlins "ITC" style rear shock was superior and retro fit back to all Ohlins Twin Shocks, 1978 and newer.
To kit or reseal a pair of earlier style Ohlins, all you needed to do to accommodate this better seal was to go to the later shock body cap. Not a big difference, it is 6mm deeper, but early caps will not fit back on once the new seals are used.
This later Piggyback cap may already be on your early remote Ohlins. It is identified by light gold color and a body groove (this groove allows for a much easier removal). The earlier caps were a simple, low profile design, more difficult to remove, as you have to dig in between the cap and body to tap out of body.
