DDC Rear Spring option
« on: January 30, 2019, 02:10:25 PM »
I've scanned through this section, and it seems like the recommendation for someone above 200lbs to get the preload in range is that the front springs can be replaced, but for the rear shock recommendation is to get a new shock (I see Wilburs mentioned). 

Is that right, or have people had success with just a new spring on the rear shock?  A bit out of my budget right now for the shock so will hold off if that's the case.

Yes, I'd seen that one, but since you'd said "Hoping this will get me in spec sag wise and maintain all the DDC functions" I wasn't sure if this worked for you or not?

I plan on installing the stiffer springs sometime in April. I will post results then.

A good read.  Looks like the Triple Tuning link now directs to Wilbers, so looks like just the shock option there, no separate spring.  Plenty of other good information in there though.

... so looks like just the shock option there, no separate spring...

Alpha-racing Germany sells seperat springs. They fit on a RR but they also fit in the R cause i guess it is the same Shock:

https://shop.alpharacing.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=393_559_576_578&max_display=50

Yesterday, i bought a used100nm spring for the OEM shock and used 10,5 fork springs for the DDC oem fork. If Its here, i will try it on the OEM shock without another Modifikation.

I had ask many Specialists. Some did not replay, some say, without Modifikation makes n sense, only one say, He would chage the spring.
The Question was: spring is week due to 2 Persons. I had ask for the easyest work.
The money range Was 400 for only changing incl. the springs up to 1500 Euro for wesa in the back an a Front Modifikation.

The price for the used springs was 130 Euro, maybe i have waste it...

Update:
The RR Damper fits NOT! Its 18mm longer and the Resevoir hits the Sensor.
I sold Damper and back Spring on ebay and got my money back.

Last week i put the fornt Springs in rhe fork and filled up 20ml of forkoil on the right: works great, SAG is perfekt and hard breaking bring 12 mm for reserve. Withe the OEM Springs i had 2 mm.

Back Damper:
I talked to Mathias Greiff from alpha racing. He said that the max Spring for the back without any modifikation is 95 nm due to problems with the rebound. But he did not know the Damper cause i am the first who asked for that. Cant believe, but, ok.
On his opinion, i will need an seperate Spring Plate to fit an hlins or Wilbers Spring on the damper.
He also said i would wait for about 2 month, cause he had a lot of work. To much for me, now on spring.

I bought the Spring Plate and another used Damper, now OEM and send it to MCET here in Germany. The owner, Thomas Thiele, said that the hlins 01091 will fit onto the Damper. He had a lot of different Springs on the fly and we take the 95nm.
Next week, i get it back and then we will see, to be continued...
