Top quality shock and a really fair price......GLWS
If I didn't have an Ohlins I would be all over this deal :thumbup:

8/10.
Colour lets it down.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Sorry I don't know the spring rating off hand, it was all provided by the great Roger at Revolution Racing, there is one Spring for solo & one for 2 up touring Im about 12 stone so it was perfect in fact perhaps the best set up Ive ever had on a bike

the colour of the springs are black, they can of course be powder coated to any sort of flavour that takes your fancy
I personally liked the black & I had the remote reservoir covered with a cut down Guinness beer can which although was perhaps old school I kind of liked

anyway I guess if there are no upgraders here I will put it on flee bay see if there is anyone interested there

The spring rate is stamped on the end of the coil. 12st would be 800 or 850lb spring I think.

As a spring from a ball point pen is stronger than the CCt spring you may be on to something there Kev... :lol: :lol:
