Öhlins USA is introducing a new shock and fork kit for the Buell 1125R.

The BU 788 TTX rear shock features a manual pre-load adjuster specifically designed for the new 1125R. The fully adjustable BU 788 TTX is designed for street riders but a full race version is also available.

Up front, Öhlins USA offers a new FGK 25mm fork kit, also available in a standard production form as well as a race version.

The BU 788 TTX and the FGK front fork are included in AMA Pro Racing’s 2009 homologated equipment list.

Öhlins USA offers new shock and fork kits for the Buell 1125R.Öhlins USA recently tested the new shock and fork kit with the Team Latus Motors Racing team at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. earlier this month. Racers Josh Bryan and Alan Schmidt provided valuable feedback to Mike Fitzgerald, Öhlins USA road race manager.

“This Buell 1125R is way better than the bike I rode last year thanks to Mike from Öhlins and the new suspension parts we got to try out on the motorcycle,” says Bryan.

Team Latus completed a second test this Jan. 24 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, trying out another Öhlins front fork.
