My Wilbers has landed too.



160 N/mm for the spring: 82 kg rider 50%, + 65 kg passenger 50%, sport, tour, road only.

Some paint imperfections near the spring ends, gladly they clocked it to hide imperfections when installed into the bike.
I'd also preferred a black knob for the hydr. preload.

Very good manufacturing, finishes and assembly, hope it will last.

Hi Puccio,

looking forward to your experience with the shock. Did you also buy the springs for the front fork?

All the best,

RM

Thanks guys for your concern about my potential shock spring ;-)

Congrats Puccio too...I wish I had new shock already.

I have to ask wilbers a bit more about this 180N spring..

Do we actually know what is stock spring rate? I mean 2013+ year of production

Hi mate,

I'll decide if doing something in front only next year, after having found a good balance with the new shock both in solo and two-up.
I only needed a shock better suited for riding around with my gf than the OEM unit, which was at a limit in terms of spring preload and started to fade when hot after 20k km.
It also brought my balls to the ground (italian expression for being fed up) with its stupid, tool operated hydraulic preloader.

I'll be away for work until Christmas, so the Wilbers will act as an overpriced paperweight for a month or two  :138:
