Sellis Posted February 28, 2007 Share Posted February 28, 2007 Hello All, I'm in the process of installing Ohlins on my 1100RT. The Range that Ohlins speficies in the manual are: Without Rider: 10-20mm for the Rear 15-30mm for the Front With Rider: 25-40mm for the Rear 35-50mm for the Front I'll like to know what those of you have installed Ohlins have set them at. This seems like a pretty wide range. I was sort of thinking of seting the preload at the low end of the scale, then when I'm fulley loaded I would have a little to spare. I don't do any track days, but do ocassionaly do some spirited riding in the mountains, so I'm not sure how I should set the preload! The rear is a pain to get to, have to pretty much take it off the bike to adjust the preload on the spring, anyone have any idea how much movement (turns or mm) when adjusting the spring preload will produce in sag. I guess it is sort of a hit and miss method, but there has been such good advise given on the board, I thought I'd ask before I had to try to figure it out myself! I've found a few threads on Ohlins Installation, but most were for the mechanical installation or set up on a GS, I have not been able to find anything specifically for a RT. Thanks to all Steve Link to comment
