OMG!!!! What the hell did I do!!!

Sunday I went for a short ride with Whitelighting99 & was loving the ride to SP. We changed bikes & I really love the confort of lighting's bike. When we changed back he said it was a bit rough on the rear shock. He is right!!!

Today I called Kyle Racing to see what the rate the spring I had & he said it was the stiffest spring that is available. But, Dan also said it is the wrong rear shock for the bike. It is for a ST2 or ST4 not a ST3.
He has not give me an option but what I have is a Ohlins # DU7013 with 140NM
rate spring.
It appears that Dan will not be selling a replacement spring...
This is a new bike to me & I thohought people used the Ohlins adjustabkle shock on ST3's?
What am I to do?

SBKI Mike, I made the headlight shell out of Carbon Fiber. Way to much work!!! But then again Brad wants to be different then every other ST.

Wow. That has to be the hottest ST ever built! I think I like it better than Uncle Wendell's. The DD headlight and surround looks really great in the darker shade. Sweet!

Say hi to Brad for me and tell him not to be such a STranger!

SBKI Thomas I'm glad that I could be of service. Ohlins shocks can have the nitrigen reservoirs moved a little and we can always add a longer or short hose depending on what you need. Glad you liked the pictures. Maybe I will post one with the girls.

Mike, Good eye on Brad's bike. I don't own it though it has spent more time in my garage than his. I'm the guy who built it for him. The latest is that we had another swing arm made and then I had to make it custom like usual. This time though I powder coated it Black and it really rocks on the bike. -Ken

Mike Ken, looks like you bought Brad's ST4s! I didn't know he had sold it. Lot's of trick go fast components as well as plenty of eye-candy. He offered to let me ride it when we met up in Utah and I'm still regreting that I never got around to take him up on it. Why did he sell it and did he replace it with anything?

I haven't heard from him for a year or more.

BlueST2 Thanks Ken, I'll PM you If I have any further questions. I can't go without saying..."Oh my GOD!!! That is one damn HOT ST you posted"!!! Nice color too by the way. I've been salivating all day at work just thinking about it. Well done!

My next dilemma is to see if there is enough room in the right side seat fairing for the Ohlins remote reservoir. I have a Ducati alarm system to be mounted in there already and I can't move it because the wiring is specific to my bike and places the alarm under the seat in the space between the frame and plastic side fairing! It's to bad Ohlins doesn't make a piggyback reservoir (46PRCS) for the ST series bike like the stock Sachs unit has.
