I'm afraid to ask, but how much did the rebuild cost?

So do you have to recalibrate the DDC if you change preload or springs?

Zombie.
It's 999,- euros, not cheap.
I found a used shock on eBay for 160 euros and had that rebuild, that way I can set the bike back to stock later on if needed or when I sell the bike.

CrazyBiker.
Triple-Tuning/Wilbers recommended to to rebuild the internals when you change the spring rate. You could decide not to, but that was worded as "not ideal".
You don't have to do anything when changing preload.

My "new" shock has a stiffer springs and rebuilt hydraulic internals for a 100kg/220lbs rider. They also said the electronics inside the shock was modified because of the other modifications.

I'm looking forward to getting this fitted to the bike and see how the bike is.

Good job :028:
The tough part now will be keeping to your fighting weight.
After all that expense you don't want to be going to the gym to often.

I'm kind of trying to loose weight.
Last year I was 106kg+gear, currently sitting just under 100kg, and the goal is to get closer to 90kg during the year.
Looking at the front, where I get BMW's maximum SAG number (10mm) at 3 turns in, I'm pretty sure I can drop to 90kg+gear and still be able to adjust it to within spec.

I think with my new setup, someone weighing 90-110kg + gear will be able to adjust it within spec.
When I was on the bike weighing 106kg without gear, having the front preload set to max gave me 6mm of SAG which should make someone a fair bit heavier sit at 10mm.

Never been impressed with the suspension to be honest,previous BMW was the same.
Might have improved on the latest model.
Look forward to your updates.

Can't fault BMW if your weight doesn't fit in the standard specs. I love the suspension as it is setup right for me.

But either way do you have to recalibrated the DDC using GS911?

If you know of some way to recalibrate the DDC using a GS911 tool, I'd be happy to hear how to do it.

I read another thread which said you have to? Is it needed. The confusion around this has caused me not to touch the preloads though the stock settings work well for me
