Abstract: The supermassive binary black hole system OJ 287 gives a unique possibility to examine gravitational effects to high accuracy. The quasiperiodic light variations of this object have been observed for more than one century. Based on the times of these outbursts the orbital elements and other parameters of the system were determined to high accuracy. Using recent assumptions on the spins of the components we study the effects of spin contributions to the orbit up to 3.5 PostNewtonian order.
