    This is kind of a want to buy ad I guess. I seem to recall some of you might have been experimenting with Ohlins spring rates at some point. The standard 70 is proving too stiff for my weight, I've had to take out a lot of preload and crank up the damping to stop it kicking back too much.

    So, I'm looking for a 55 or a 65 spring. If you happen to have one you want to part with, let me know.

    The springs that cone on the Sherco Ohlins are 65N/mm.

    Can't find the 60s any more.

    Next option down is the 55 from Splat Shop in UK. That's on the soft side unless you have R Racing mod your Ohlins for longer travel. Then fit the 55 spring with no more than 3mm preload.

    Riders who try my bike set up thus cone off gobsmacked at how good the rear suspension is.
