Ducati 848 1098 1198 Dan Kyle / OHLINS DU5150 adjustable rear shock absorber


Please read the ENTIRE PAGE BEFORE bidding!!!!


This auction is for an Dan Kyle/Ohlins DU5150 adjustable rear shock absorber from a 2007 Ducati 1098S. Still in excellent condition. Only issue is the spring perch is scarred up from multiple adjustments as this was on a dealer sponsored track bike. Offers adjustment in damping, preload & compression. Here is an excerpt from a post by Dan Kyle on Ducati MS regarding these shocks. 
"The 1098S uses Ohlins rear shock DU5111. This is a 2 way adjustable shock with a street valving spec. It uses an 80.0 Nmm spring (1091-24-80) 160mm free length. With 23mm of preload on ther spring. Way too much. The After market DU515 shock is similar to the stock 1098S rear shock the DU511. It is different in that it is 3 way adjustable and already has Ohlins recommended Track valving inside. The problem with both is when you are trying to reduce the amount of spring preload with the stock 160mm long spring, the double nuts that control the spring preload hit the side of the shock before before they get to the bottom of the threads. Before we sell a DU515 shock we take off the nuts & machines the top one to a smaller diamter & machine a bevel on to the top edge, this allows it to go to the bottom of the threads. The other nut we machine thinner, this again reduces the amount of preload on the spring allowing us it to reduce the stock preload of 24mm to what we think is a more suitable 12-16mm."
This will fit all 848, 1098 & 1198's & possibly other odels so check with your dealer for your specific application before bidding. Feel free to email with any questions. I usually answer all emails within 24 hours or less. Check out my other items for more great deals on Ducati parts.

Shipping will be $15 for PRIORITY mail including delivery confirmation in the US

I also offer local pick up


Payment due within 5 days of auctions end. If you plan on bidding on multiple items, I have no problem holding them until the last auction is over & sending them all together. However, if there are more than 5 days between auctions, I ask that you pay for the items themselves (minus shipping) as you win them. I'll then give you a total shipping quote for all items combined after the last auction you bid on


Sorry, but I can no longer ship to APO/FPO addresses. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
All shipping will be a quoted flat rate through USPS PRIORITY mail including delivery confirmation unless otherwise specified in the auction (see item description for exact rate).  I usually send out next business day so your parts get to you as soon as possible. If your payment is received before my daily mail pick up it will go out same day. I mail daily M-S. I also combine shipping on multiple items. I am not here to make money off of shipping, that's the Post Office's job
I also offer local pick up


Due to Italy's horrendous mail system, I will no longer risk losing money & getting negative feedback to items "lost" in delivery. I have sent over one thousand international packages & have had 4 lost; ALL of them were to Italy. At this point I would trust a mail chain consisting of a pack burrow, a homing pigeon & Gollum (even if he knew the ring was in the box) before I'd trust Italy's mail system

I require USPS priority airmail on all shipments outside the US. I only charge you what the USPS rate is for your package weight. There is NO mark up over that. Please be aware of the rates to your country before you bid on/win an item. I can send small items in a flat rate priority envelope (9 1/2"x12") for only $12 to Canada & Mexico & only $14 to ALL other countries. I will NOT put a false value on the customs form so do not ask. The value on the form will be what it sold for at auction. Most international shipments incure tarriffs by the country to which an item is shipped. These fees are not applied by me & I have no control over them. It's up to the buyer to know their own countries tarriff codes/fees before buying. If you can't afford the tarriffs then don't buy the part.


Terms of Sale

Payment is due within 5 days of auctions end. Ebay auctions are legal & binding contracts. Please read the entire auction carefully before bidding. By bidding you are agreeing to all terms & conditions described within.

About Us

I'm a fellow Ducatista here to make getting parts cheaper & faster than the alternatives. All of my parts come from running, non wrecked bikes unless specifically noted otherwise in the auction. Any parts that can be, are cleaned in my solvent tank so you don't have to handle greasy items. I also ride every bike before I part it to make sure ALL parts are in good working order before selling them. I ship your parts out the next business day from payment & sometimes even day of payment. I also strive to keep my shipping rates to what it actually costs me to send the products. If my shipping quote ends up being more than $5 off what it actually costs me, I'll refund the difference back through Paypal (Paypal account required).
