Gen 3 rear spring length?
Does anyone have an 08/09 10R with STOCK PRELOAD on the rear spring? I'm looking for the exact length in MM please. The Kawasaki service manual states the stock spring length as 179mm, with a usuable range of 173.5mm - 191.5mm.
The reason i ask this question is my spring measures 171.5mm. This has me baffled as it's outside of the avalible range.
The preload hasn't been touched from new apart from me giving the adjuster collar a full turn before Sundays ride clockwise for more preload which exposed one extra thread on the shock. I assumed the preload was stock before making this small adjustment (as it's never been touched) counting 16 threads before and 17 threads after the adjustment.
If any members could take a quick measurement for me and post i'd be grateful. Thanks.
