I don't think a C spanner is going to work on these bikes, I think I used a 14mm(maybe 13) socket on the rear shock, but it is a '14 with DDC.

Simon in on to you. Take a look at the owners manual for adjustment instructions. C spanners went away with some of the older Triumphs.  :015: You do want to set up the sag for your weight. Many do it themselves but I have heard good reports of using a suspension shop.

The manual refers to the ĎC spanner under the seatí in the adjustment section.
Iíve now ordered a set of spannerís. One will fit and Iíll make my adjustments.

Doesnít it depend on whether the bike has the DDC suspension or not? I thought DDC = hex adjuster but non-DDC = C-spanner.

Yes it does!... bit of a messy area of the manual, with no real divide between DDC/ non DDC...
I have DDC, so now need to find my tool kit again  :152:

I guess you'll be sending the C spanners back?
