Sorry to say, the shelf emptied about 2 weeks ago. Next run in July-August. PM and I'll put your handle on a notification list.

Okay, would appreciate a sanity check...
Short version... 190lb rider, 07/08 shock and adapter, max preload, 40mm of sag. Is this what I should expect, or did I screw something up?

They're coming to take me away . . .

I suspect that you and your machine geared up are a bit over the 190# rear loading. 40mm (1.6") is a bit on the high side for preload for the '07-08 spring.

It is possible that you have an '04-'06 spring. If your wet weight is near the 220# range you may need a heavier spring. Maybe not.

I suggest that you put at least 150 miles on the shock and adjust the damping settings for your riding style. Does it bottom frequently? On large bumps or hard cornering? The damping settings should eliminate the pogo-stick effect.

Unless you have some dirt-bike or track time, it is difficult to appreciate a spring matched to your weight. The bike should feel like it is 'floating' over bumps and pavement perturbations. The stock spring is quite stiff and transmits most of the amplitude directly to the riders bum if he/she is less than 240 or so.

Sanity is relative. In this group, it's not shocking to question the norm. Let your butt be the measure. Style is everything, some like it stiffer.
