    Aprilia RSV 1000R Ohlins fork! Need advice!

    Hi guys! I am new to this forum. I need your advice.
    Bought a motorcycle with a Ohlins fork from Aprilia RSV 1000R Factory. The previous owner apparently was very sloppy with fork and I got this-many scratches and dents.

    Can I buy separately only what I noted in the photo? What are their names? I can not find them even on Ebay.

    Thank you for the answer! Found on ebay
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-GENUINE...1:pf:0&vxp=mtr

    It seems to me very expensive for one piece! Or is it her price?

    Just contact Ohlins directly. They are very friendly and won’t beat around the bush.

    Hey look, I wish you the very best in your endeavor but one has to ask; what in the hell did the previous owner do to those top caps? Looks like he painted a portion of them and hacked the hell out of them with a plumbers wrench. If the forks are functioning correctly then fine but what ELSE did the guy do?
    Once you go track, you don't go back!
    Just say "no" to going ghetto!

    When sending a letter writes here is:

    Not Found


    Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist.
    It looks like this was the result of either:

    • a mistyped address
    • an out-of-date link

    Technically, they are fully functional. I don `t know what he did with them, I don’t have a chance to ask. But it looks like complete sh*t, especially if you look closely. Apparently he did not have a tool to adjust the plug and used flat pliers ...

    Sorry @Demmel. The link works for me. I'm now wondering if it might only be for Euro use. I hope you fare better with the one posted by Theducatiman.
