New suspension parts came with questions
I have been on the forum long enough now that you guys have convinced me to upgrade my suspension, and i recently purchased a Ohlins rear shock and a DK link. I assume it is an HO204, but am not sure. I have not put these parts on the bike yet but I wanted to ask a few questions before I do. I don't anticipate any problems putting them on, as I have done this type of thing before, but in reading lots of threads I have seen some confusing information about setting up the shock and bike after these mods. Firstly, I have heard that the DK Link will raise the rear ride height. Is this something that can be compensated for with the Ohlins shock? I run a 190/55, so I don't want to raise it too much and risk tucking the front the next time I go to the track. Along these lines, I was talking with someone who raced RC51's way back and he said that I should raise both the front and back for better handling, and I should get fork extenders to do this. This is not something I have read about on this forum, what do you guys think?
I guess lastly, this is a used shock, what settings should I reset it to? What settings does Kyle Racing recommend with the DK link? I am 182lb when I get out of the shower, what spring do I need with the DK link? Is there a chart I can refer too?
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
