ONG NGO shock caps

ONG have introduced a new shock cap design which have been made in Italy in Ergal 7075 T6 and then hard anodised in a gun metal grey colour. The 6 upper machined pockets on the cap have a dual purpose, reducing the weight of the cap, making it the lightest on the market as well as helping with heat dissipation. The 4 bleed holes coupled to the new membranes will allow a rebound close to 0 and a homogeneous response between the shock absorbers once closed. The kit includes shock membranes.

ONG titanium clutch retaining screw

This new ONG clutch retaining screw has been made from grade 5 Titanium due to its better thermal expansion characteristics compared to steel. This will make it possible to unscrew/screw without problems, even with a hot engine. It has a total length of 9mm, of which 6mm are thread, and a protrusion from the crankshaft of only 3mm so as to avoid collisions with the tank in case of excessive flex of the chassis. The new geometry eliminates any rubbing between bearing/bell, while the additional external diameter protects the bearing from dust and foreign debris.
