TTX Preload Adjuster Relocation

For those of you that have a TTX with the hydraulic preload adjuster, I found a good spot to mount the adjuster! Sorry in advance for the poor lighting, damn near midnight. Bought part number 03102-19 (adjuster clamp) for $50.97 from Ohlins, stripped the anodized coating, and removed a portion of the part to allow for more clearance/adjustability. Overall VERY happy. Now I don't have the eye sore of an adjuster just hanging off the side of the bike.

Showing the clearance between the inner swing-arm and the adjuster, approx 3mm.

And overall plenty of clearance to actually make adjustments. As long as you don't have oven mitts for hands and sausage fingers you'll be good

If you guy's predict any issues with this mounting location let me know. There could always be that one thing I overlooked that could create clearance issues or something... the more informed the better. Enjoy!

FYI if anyone needs a spring swap but you don't want to buy the tooling, aren't comfortable doing the work, or don't want to pay a hefty shop fee.. Throw me $25 (shipping on you) and I'll have it done the same day I receive it. I've done several spring swaps with no issues including this TTX one, and as you can see it's spotless.

When in doubt... send it!

I use to have mines located their.
I ended up making something for mines in a easier location.

Ill probably just buy the Ktech mounts for the Ohlins.
