Outstanding help!

Just hung up with Jim regarding an Ohlins shock for a Tiger 800 Roadie. Outstanding service from him!

Thanks again Jim, we will talk again soon.

I have used ProPilot for years and they have always done a fantastic job. Completely transformed my 1150 GS and my F650 Dakar.

Quick question: my wife complains about the harsh ride on her 2013 R1200R and it seems (!) that the degraded comfort is mainly on the too harsh front end which might also be slightly wrong for her weight.

What would you recommend for the R given these rider specs:

- 58kg rider weight before any gear, probably about 10kg of gear including helmet
- mainly used for touring (medium distance, 200 to 500 miles per day)
- riding is often with side cases, estimate is about 50% of all miles covered are with side cases and other luggage
- no passenger, ever

Thanks!

What we had measured as rider sag was with my wife on the bike the front did around 35mm and the rear around 40mm (if I recall correctly, we did a setup when she first got it). The pre-load is nearly completely backed out at the rear, no adjustment at the front. I also softened the rear rebound half a turn from standard.

She still feels like being bumped around a lot.

Yes Mr Cug-

Thanks For the "Intell"/"measurements"


Most likely 22%+- (Average Guess ) too much Spring Rate- for the Mrs.


Even though you could unwind springs all out to get close to "rider Sag" and open up rebound some , it will most likely feel still harsh on small stuff-because the springs are on the heavy side for her wieght range.

1) The "Bike Only Or Free Sag" (No Rider aboard) will be too much free sag.

2) the actual Spring "Preload" will be too little

3) Needs preload on springs That are the correct spring rate for her wieght range to feel plush and fluffy

Plush and fluffy= good on small stuff

thanks!

jim

Hi Mr Oaklandstrom Suz DL650 Ohlins

Hi Mr Strom-

Ohlins has a S46DR1S shown below

called a SU823



They are IN Stock -and-Ready-to-Rock!

They Offer "Same But No Preloader "

THIS one Above PICTURED is Better WITh PRELOADER its sorta Nicer to have 22-23 turns Spring preload on the Fly.

SUPER WINNING!

Jim

Ah, darn. I feared that as the bikes are normally set up for a ~75kg person.

Okay. That leaves me now wondering what can be done for her. I guess a suspension shop could re-spring the shocks. Or is Öhlins planning on anything for the 2011+ R1200R models?
