I recently installed Ohlins on my 1200GS hoping to lower it 7/8". I think the achieved lowering was more like 0.4".
I took measurements as per the instructions to determine Free Sag and Ride Height:
Front: Free Sag = 39mm (should be 40mm-50mm)
Ride Height = 50mm (should be 50mm - 60mm)
Rear: Free Sag = 4mm (should be 10mm)
Ride Height = 22mm (should be 30mm-40mm)
The front set up from the supplier is perfect. The rear free sag needs to be adjusted however it appears there is no mechanical pre-load adjustment left as there is no thread remaining above the locking ring. The hydraulic pre-load adjustment is all the way to - (negative) as well.
QUESTION: How important is the rear sag and ride height (I think its important)... has anyone else had this issue of all of the adjustment in the rear shock being used up before installation?? Anyone who has this same installation please post a pic of the rear shock so I can look at it.
Thanks in advance!!
