Changing Settings on Ohlins Rear Shock?
I have an 88 K100, and it has an Ohlins gas shock.
The thing is, I'm loaning the bike to a friend, and we are going to ride about the East Coast together. He is a BIG boy, (300 lbs + maybe???) and he's bringing his daughter along. A few years back, I had the shock rebuilt by Ohlins, and they set it up for my weight (+/- 165 lbs WITH gear on), and riding style... I feel like I must somehow adjust the shock for this venture.
I *HAPPEN* to have an Ohlins spanner...
To accommodate my buddy and his daughter's combined weight, do I simply crank the Ohlins shock to "full on"? Then crank it back to its current setting afterwards?
Can it be so simple?
