Not mine but thought it may interest you, http://bayarearidersforum.com/forums...d.php?t=419134

His price is 700, if I wasn't set on trying to get some wheels I'd jump on this...

No problem Cape, I think he put up the serial number of the spring on the ad, maybe you can ask Ohlins what the spring rate is?

Spring rate is 110 N/mm, or 11.22 Kg/mm, or 628 lbs/in.
If it's with the OEM lower rocker arm, it's approx. for a 225 lb. rider, or with a Kyle link, approx. a 190 lb. rider.

Well Cape...it is a bummer, I decided to bite the hook and took the deal for my self as the spring rate is perfect for my size...I don't know how I will explain this to my wife....the voices in my head are starting to overwhelm me. Will a CBR1000 04 and up work with an RC?http://bayarearidersforum.com/forums...d.php?t=419155

If it's due to spring rate, springs can be changed out easily by a shop with a spring compressor (or you can buy a spring compressor from Race Tech).
Only takes a few minutes.
I use Hyperco springs, which are +/- 1% in tolerance.
Only about $75 too.
