Moose hopefully you know more about the Ohlins than we do down under.

They went to road test the rear piggy back shock and found out it won't fit, so I have been told that they are looking at a remote ressie for the rear.
The fronts are about finished.
What is the status over there?

Thanks mate, Geoff.

I read in a dirt wheels article (can't remember which month) that Ohlins was one of the shocks that Yamaha tested on the YFZ and they still went with the Kayaba's on front, but not sure why they went with them, it could have been price. I would go with the Elka's over the Ohlins.

I thought I heard somewhere that Kayaba and Ohlins are owned by the same folks and that they use the same internals.

Found this over at BT-
KAYABA = OHLINS

Kayaba is the home made brand from Yamaha ! Yamaha bought Ohlins a few years ago ! So The housing is Kayaba , but inner pieces are Ohlins !

have a nice day
I haven't verified it but it makes sense.
