Send it out for a lesser rate spring and service, after 4 years it's due. Do a linear rear link while your at it, the Ducshop fits just fine without mods.Anyone have exp replacing the rear spring on a 1098 Tri? Mine is at the end of the preload soft adj and still cannot get enough sag, so I presume I need a softer spring
Hey I just saw your resp, thank you. I may be selling the bike but if it doesnt happen I will check in to this modSend it out for a lesser rate spring and service, after 4 years it's due. Do a linear rear link while your at it, the Ducshop fits just fine without mods.
At 180lb I think a 75 rate spring will be ok for you to set the sag right. For me is still juuust a little to stiff at 170lb but for a lighter one I would have to change the link also.Crisan - thank you for the link to your spring issue, I have not gone through it all yet but it all appears to be good advice. I am a bit porkier than you at 180 but the rear is still very hard on my 1098 but the front seems OK. I agree with you that the proper sag is the way to start and then you go from there with the dampening. Still even after all the riding experience that I have, I still cannot seem to get suspensions right.
