Doesn't seem right.

Sorry to hit you with more 'book' information, but... each full rotation of the adjustment collar is said to use 1.5mm of the 13.5mm's worth of adjustment room and accounts for 14.3 kilos (30 pounds) of rider weight. When you think of it that way it does seem to provide for a pretty wide range of adjustment. Its all in the owners guide I swear! I'll admit the 14.3 kilos per turn bit does seem a little crazy, if only i had a 14.3 kilo weight and way too much time on my hands....

Maybe your shock spring has slacked out?

Of course the sag at the standard position will vary by rider weight and need to be adjusted within the min and max spring length numbers to get about 95-100mm. That number comes off the pig pen website, I've found it to work well.

Just confirming these are spring preload adjustments?

There are also measurements of max and min length of the spring. They do sag over time and have a "wear" limit.

I didn't get around to looking at my eibach spring installation page. I'll see if i can do that tonight.

Thanks!
I guess I didn't think this posting out to well...

I have the 7/8" bars now but want to move to 1 1/8". What would I need from HDB or someone else to do this?

Anyone have a 11kg shock spring they'd like to get rid of?
If so, shoot me a PM. I"m in the market for one.

Lights out!

I was out riding the other day and all of a sudden, the lights went out. The bike still runs like a dream but with no lights or turn signals. Where should i start troubleshooting?

Had a go (almost) at it today but as you can see, something else required all my attention :)

Do you want to run a steering stabilizer?


A direct answer to your above question is: from HDB, lower handle bar clamps and their top clamp (below is the top part of this set up)...If you run a S/S then it's different.

Nice looking ride.

So yea, it's confirmed that they don't suggest or recommend shortening the spring much more then .54in. Longest (preload is required) is 244mm and if you spring measures less than 240 free length it should be replaced.

Good work. That's why I called caution on the one posted before when it's clamped down the threads to the degree it was. I know from installing mine that I was no where near the end of the threads.

The other alternative is simply to add spacers. Tusk makes a cheap solution ($24), or you can get something like ROX which are around $90. I have the Rox 1 and 1.5 and like them. Being 6'4" I wouldn't mind them a little higher, so I bought some CR Highbends yet to install. Just make sure to get the standard (7/8) to 1 1/8" risers.

[sweet pics deleted]
Sweet setup, Jim! Currently I'm not using a steering stabilizer (though apparently everyone else does - I'm not too bright). So one last question: For the HDB lower clamps do I need the 10mm or 12mm bolt?

I guess by now you are wondering why don't I just go and look? I broke my leg Jan 29th, bought my XRR without being able to test ride it and it is sitting in a van that I can't get into or unload for a while. I'm just trying to get some parts lined up for when I can start my build. I'm also in process of procuring a TM40, stator rebuild, and 7" race light.

I do appreciate your help.

I don't know bolt size. I'd think they would reuse the stock one? I have BRP triple clamps and lower risers...with HDB as the cherry on top.

You have a broken leg...and you bought a XRR...I like your style.

i had the 2" ROX risers, they're pretty nice. I managed to bend them in a wee spill. That said they probably kept my bars from getting mangled since they can rotate they absorb that sort of thing to a degree.
