I remember a few months back a discussion on the Ohlins forks for the KLX110that were being developed by Big Minis and Ohlins.



Someone here made a comment that they had an inside source at Ohlins and the word he got was that Ohlins was not interested in mass producing a set of forks for the KLX110...no real market for it they said.



Anyone heard anything new? I guess I was hoping that after Vegas we might start seeing some new stuff. For that matter, did anyone go and see any cool new stuff?



I think if I were bringing a new product to market for pit bikes, I think I would debut it at Vegas. Anyone got any good news?



Regards.

Yea that was one of the first things I looked for when I was at Mini Moto and there wasn't a set in sight. If they were going to be put into production, Big Minis would have had a set on a bike out there for sure

AFAIK Ohlins wasn't making custom forks for 110s. Big Minis was just buying Ohlins 38mm inverts and shortening the travel. They then supplied a custom set of triples, and a matching hub with a 14" rim laced up.

If thats the case, I wonder what kind of brake setup that was...or is in the photos on the Big Minis website.
