rear preload - screwing on DDC model
« on: November 17, 2018, 07:26:43 AM »
Hi,
i wanted to adjusted the sag on my bike with DDC, but when i got to adjusting the preload on the rear this is what i found:
- Factory default setting is preload set all the way to the left (fully anticlockwise) - Is this really factory default?
- to increase preload i need to dial the adjusted to the right.  I decided to screw it all the way to see how many turns were available.    It just kept screwing to the right.  I counted 20 turns before i gave up.   Is this normal or do i have a problem?

regards,
frank

All the way out sounds right to me, that's what I've had before, and yes I didn't count the number of turns in, but it's quite a few! Definitely worth getting right.

Yep, sounds right on both counts!

thanks for your responses.   But can someone tell me how many turns are there to the right (increasing preload) to reach maximum?   Like i said i counted 20 full turns before I stopped thinking this is not normal.

thank-you.

Murphys law says there's probably 21 turns! I never counted how many, but there's certainly quite a few. I'd just keep going until it's correct for your weight.

My fat arse maxed out the preload (it wont turn past a certain point when you get it at max) then backed it off half a turn turn.  I was ~245 pounds at the time and the max preload is for a rider at something like 200-210 pounds i think

 I weight in at 250lbs and have my preload maxed out on both ends. The front feels softer then the rear. Ordered the Wilbers Suspension  9,5 N/mm  forks springs and having a custom spring made for the rear shock by Cannon RaceCraft Inc. to match the stiffer fork springs as I could not find a source for stiffer shock springs for the s1kr. Hoping this will get me in spec sag wise and maintain all the DDC functions.
