are you putting an Ohlins spring on an Ohlin's shock or stock or Penske. Perhaps a few more details on what you are doing and trying to accomplish?

Support the rear frame of the bike(not swingarm).Remove shock.Loosen the 2 preload adjustment nuts(located on top of the spring).After spring is loose push up on the bottom retainer ring.Remover retainer wire clip.THAT'S IT.Pull it apart.

Is there a big advantage to be gained using the Ebay Ohlins spring on the stock shock? Anyone know the correct spring from Ohlins for the 06/07 for a rider at 190-200lbs?

Did you ever find out what the stock spring length was? Any visible flaws on the Ohlins spring?

It rides nice. I feel so much better in the curves. Feels like night and day. My friends cannot believe it's still on the stock shock. My shock is the shock off of the 05 zx-10!!! Thanks for all the help fellas!!!:thumbsup:
