F4 mamba ohlins??

I recently bought a s/hand shock which I was going to fit to my 750 Brutale. It's from a 2005 F4 mamba and its painted like an ohlins but they don't recognise the part no. -8000A3187

It looks very similar to the sachs unit but with a semi-remote preload
adjuster. I've attached a photo.
Can anyone shine a light on this.
Settings would be a bonus.
Thanks, mark.

Oh my..... looks like you just bought a Sachs with remote preload (like ones on the F4 1000S-R-312) thinking it's an Ohlins

BTW welcome

No, that don't look like a remote preload adjuster. There's a second nitrogen reservoir on that shock...

Mark, you got better picts?

it is a stock shock from a 1000s/R/312R model with a sticker on it..... hate to bear the bad news.... but the guy tricked you.

I saw that on the ebay and thought that guy should be hauled out to the woodshed and given a few lashes of the belt.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

Bummer. I was going to suggest that it looks exactly like an old Sachs shock I have on the shelf with an Ohlins sticker on it.

Mmmm, Thought as much, got it on Ebay right enough did the F4s' all have the remote pre-load and are they any better than the ones fitted to 750 Brutale. It starts of well, but once it heats up the damping disappears.
It's just not the way I like to be spanked!
By the way,Can anybody rebuild them?
Thanks, Mark

If you bought it through ebay start a dispute and get your money back so you cna buy a proper Ohlins.
If you got it for really cheap then perhaps you should keep it becaus at least you have the remote preload adjuster and it should be newer than yours.
As far as i know you can't rebuild it.
