I use one but set up is personnel, not a secret.

My setup will vary to yours.

You need a different spring weight depending on your weight.

I suggest you get your sag set up by a professional suspension shop and they will give you base settings to work with, then you can tweak to your liking from there.

Is it at least sprung for your weight?

I'm 90kg and at my weight the recommended spring is 11.14kg.

I have a 11.7kg/115nm spring which is a little stiff probably but the next choice down was a 10.7kg/105nm which is definately too soft for me.

Stock our Kawasaki was sprung at a low as 9.7kg which is way to low for me and the bike was squating everytime I would get on the gas and tend to run wide.

My spring is a 2 1040-41/115 L3610

The important numbers are the 41 which is the Ohlins rating and the 115which is the nm rating.

110kg seems high as, what's the numbers on your spring?

Have you ridden on that spring yet?

Below is the spring weights worked out for your weight, see the info in bold.

Double check that is what you need here below.

http://racetech.com/ChooseVehicle.aspx

Enter your brand, bike and year, then on the next page click on calculate spring rate (it's in big writing accross top of page) put in your weight without riding gear and your bikes wet weight, it will tell you what you need. It should at least give you a good place to start. You really only need the nm rating of the spring which will be the same rating Ohlins or otherwise once calculated.

The numbers at the start will differ as the ones I posted where RT (Racetech), the Ohlins rep you order from will only care about what bike and year and spring rate, they will know the length needed and can suss out the Ohlins code for the spring easy as. Any issues let me know. :wink:

I am having trouble finding the correct spring rate for my Ohlins TTX. I have the ohlins ttx 21041-36/ 105 spring on right now. Does anybody know what weight these are good for? I am 192lbs without gear. I have the option to buy a .95 and 1.0kg from someone.

105 is too soft, you would be happier with a 110 if you have an attack ..kyle... link, or a 120 if you don't plan on getting a link. I'm sure LDH can chime in here. My opinion is just that, an opinion, I am 202lb unsuited, I wasn't happy with the 130 , the 110 was adjustable to give me 28mm sag , but I like the way the 120 feels best, I do not have a link

I am 88kg naked or about 95kg fully leathered/booted up. I run a 120nm/12kg spring on my gen 4 TTX. I find this to be very good. Sounds like you are in a similar weight range to me. With the 11kg spring and max preload my sag was 47mm. I use a stock link and have raised the rear by around 6mm on the shock. The bike feels stable and planted cornering and doesn't wallow accelerating hard out of corners, sounds like this is your style of riding also.

Assuming you have the OEM linkage you are way way undersprung. Additionally unless you have specifically altered the initial collar preload on your shock you also have the wrong length spring installed.

You should be using 21040- series springs not the shorter 21041- series.

At your weight with the OEM linkage I would advise a 120Nm spring

With the Kyle Racing Linear Linkage and C37/R5 Valve spec you would likely be able to use a 105Nm as long as it was the correct length

I wonder why the wrong spring length is on there? I may just post a pic of my shock. I'm trying to get my bike ready for Oct 19th trackday. So what are my options?

Whatever works best for you. It would be nice to be able to see the spring numbers and the preload collar etc.

Hopefully I can just get a 115-120mm spring for just right now to hold me over until I can afford something more fancy.
