Hi There, I am a new member, Just bought my first Blackbird having upgraded from an old VFR800.
My bike is a 2004 model, in the 2 tone matt black over silver colour, I think it was a special edition?
Bike is mostly standard, but does have bar risers, and an Ohlins shock.....
So my new to me XX came with an ohlins rear setup. I'm a total newbie when it comes to suspension, but from reading up I may have end up changing the spring for my weight, 325lb fully loaded. I'm hoping to at least get through the summer without changing it.
I'm having problems with my hugger...
Ohlins list 2 rear shocks for the bird.
Shock 1 is HO 639:
HO 639 - Öhlins
Shock 2 is HO 518:
HO 518 - Öhlins
They are both type S46HR1C1S:
S = monotube
46 = Piston Diameter
H =Gas pressurized with external reservoir
R1 = Adjustable damping with a knob
C1 = Adjustable...
