I only weigh 65 kg and the Ti termi can is quite a few kg lighter than the steel can. i think its a bit too light and am going to swap it for 68 - 70 ish i think, need to know how much 15mm of spring preload equates to in spring weight. I'd prefer to have spring at full extension so I can run more preload if I'm at a track day but want a soft road setup rest of time.

What you need is the Ohlins remote preload adjuster

Non of this C-Spanner nonsense, no scraping knuckles trying to get in around the pipes etc

yeah i read that and used it as a guide for ride height although quite why they say lower front when you can steepen head angle i'm not sure. Dropping forks through does make a hugh difference though. I'm always reluctant to accept preload and damping settings, i tend to ride on bumpy roads not a race track so need a more comfortable setting which is usually softer and with little rebound to stop it packing down as you go through a series of different size bumps.

The Ohlins website has some useful stuff.

The following pdf's cover most of it


Ohlins fork manual

Ohlins rear shock

Set up guide

Ohlins tuning

Thank you all.

Yep, seems like it doesn't come with the bike

As for the settings..... i'm going to try section8's advice on preload set up.
