Have an authorized Ohlins shop revalve the damper and install the race needle. Don't mess with the oil. Should cost around $100+ but well worth it

Kyle Racing, fixed the Ohlins dampers, that were lame...

Seems Ohlins sourced them to China... And to compound the disaster, Kawasaki spec'd the valve for people that couldn't be trusted to turn the knob, without creating problems.

Sending the Damper to Kyle Racing (in the Monterey area of Calif).
Gets the Job Done
