Ohlins spring.

Is this the right spring for me?
I'm 170lbs., about 185~190 with gear.

Oh yeah, I SCORED! on this shock.
Madbuyer, I owe you one for alerting me to this Ebay scoop! The seller - jerkface - with a total of 10 buys and this was his first sale, had a buy it now price of $475. A couple guys were bidding in the $200 range. I pounced on it. I was plenty nervous about the sale, but it got here today.
To bad it's going to be a while before I get to try it out...

110Nm, but they don't make that in a 170mm series so you will have to reduce the initial colloar preload by 10mm & use a 160mm series

Thanks so much LDH. I was hoping you would weigh in.
That's absolutely perfect. And just what jerkface told me about the rider weight.

Oh you're gonna love the Ohlins, seems to magically transform me into Rossi.

J/K, seriously j/k big time...I've had Ohlins on many bikes and it's night and day from stock. When the bike is handling right the confidence goes up and the ride is just that much better.

Have fun and get her back on the road!
