Re: ohlins itc question

I'm just finishing up a rebuild of an '83 Husky 250WR to ride in AHRMA post vintage events in the SE. As for the ITC Ohlins shocks I sent them off to Craig at Husky 4 Speed to be re built, re vavled, and re sprung.
I couldn't be happier with the results.
For thr forks it depends on which model you have as to the volume of oil. The WR uses 420cc per leg and the CR & XC uses 450cc. The wieght of the oil is between 10-30wt depending on your riding style. I use 15wt because I ride mainly in the woods but if I start riding some vintage MX races I may have to increase to 20wt and heavier fork springs. Right now I'm happy with the suspension and ready to ride the AHRMA national XC race at the Barber vintage fest in 2 weeks.
