Ohlins TTX Help

I just picked up a used Ohlins TTX. The guy I bought it from didn't have much information on it, but from the research I've done it appears to be set up to run in conjunction with the Dan Kyle link. There is a sticker on the shock which indicates the internal valves are C37, R5. The spring has the following marks: 21040-36/105 L2213

I weigh around 195 without gear. My bike currently has the OEM link. I do mostly street riding but am starting to get more into the track. What I want to know is if I need to get the Kyle link (or the Attack link) to run the shock as it is currently set up, or if I can change the spring and run it with the OEM link? If a spring change is viable, what spring would I need?

Any help, guidance or suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

That spring will be perfect for you. I am 170 lbs wo gear and I run a 100 which suits me perfect. You should be able to obtain the correct sag with that spring. Put the shock on the bike and JAM. Don't get all caught up in the hype. Test out the shock in some good canyons or the track. I am sure you will be pleased. If you have to get into the valving, it is easy to access it. The shock is probably stock but who knows.

I forgot to add that this is for a 2012 ZX10R.

The spring you have is good for 140-160 lbs in gear with the OEM link. With the OEM 2012 Link and 195 w/o gear you will likely need a 120Nm spring. The valving you have installed is also for the Kyle Racing 5% Link and while it will work it will not be optimal for the OEM link.

Thanks for the advice. Since I'm over 180 lbs, is the attached the right link setup? I saw on the Dan Kyle website that the silver link is for riders in excess of 180 lbs, while the black link is for those under 180 lbs.

That actually looks like the 5% linkage for >180 which btw is what riders of all weights ended up favoring.

Ok great. Thank you for the help. I'll probably go ahead and purchase the link as well then. Is the spring currently on the TTX good for my weight with the Kyle link or will that likely need changed?

You are right on the border of one spring rate to another. I would definitely try the 105 you have with the new linkage before purchasing the 110. Some riders like the lighter spring with more preload.
