I agree. I think I commented on this a while ago. Big concern where its at and if it gets covered with mud, then it will overheat too. If any good ideas out there on relocation, im may move it.

The new Ohlins shocks & springs arrived. 15.28" long and 4.8" stroke equates to 8+ inches at the rear wheel. The Works shocks were 15" long, but the springs were stiffer and had less sag. So, the plan is hit the same swingarm angle but with slightly more sag.

Heres some eye candy....

On the reg/rec relocation, maybe move it straight up the front down tube above your upper crash bar tube. That would get it up to a more crash protected spot and up above the solid part of the fender so water, mud, and debris could not collect on it.
Worth a look anyway.

Maybe mount it sideways with an air scoop like Buell did with their oil cooler?

Theyre Type S36P (S36PR1C1LB), but a variation of. I worked direct with Ohlins USA on the desired dimensions/specs and they built them up. They couldn't get the length vs stroke needed with the rebound damping wheel, so removed that and just have a screw adjustment at the bottom.

20-28N/mm springs I started with were too soft. Now trying 24-33N/mm tonight. EDIT: 24-33's too soft also. Shooting for ~1/3 travel sag. Moving on to new springs...

Love your build and website. Out of curiosity, would the swing arm extensions have worked if left bolted in place? They appeared well made and may have done the job more than adequately. I have seen aftermarket extensions for some sport bikes; was wondering that it might work well for a ADV sporty. Might also be a little more economical.

I don't think economy was a major goal for this project

I don't think the extensions would be a good solution - at least the way I made them. They would probably need another bolt to stabilize them instead of just the one bolt at the original axel position. Then drilling a hole in the swingarm for that bolt would add a weak spot that may crack in time. Maybe for mild riding they might last, but I wouldn't trust them for hard core dual sporting. That being said, maybe theres a different good solution out there for a bolt on extension....? Also, when you extend the swingarm, the brake caliper moves to the new axel position and you may not have enough or any of the stop bracket left to hold it in place. That would have to be addressed.

Ramon is right. This build was about building a dream from a vision and probably a bike I will have for the rest of my riding days. So, economics went out the window long ago

The rear shock springs are now dialed in. Took three sets to get it, but its done.

Heres a pic. Full bike pics this weekend...and a long awaited ride

I'm surprised you mounted them with the reservoirs pointing forward. The "usual" orientation is with the reservoirs to the rear.

That knob might have something to do with the orientation.
