Ah right, my bolts are a little grubby so would probably replace while doing the job. Good to know i'm part way there though.

Do the Ohlins come with their own bolts? Every kit i've seen fitted, looks like it has bolts that match the shock body.

Cheers folks. Ross, will have a look in your site. Cheers Mike, I'm not fitting them. It'll likely be one of the traders on here as I'm getting two or three jobs done at the same time.

Can anyone confirm if I can fit later Ohlins to a 5 but without drilling the hub? Plip mentioned inserts?

Yes you can, there is a spacer kit which fits between the upright and strut which also reduces the size of the bolt holes to the std 5/6, GB enterprises sell them, possibly Rossport does too

Stick some whiteline/superpro camber bolts in.
