rear shock settings

Alright I got my Ohins TTX installed today with of course a little bit of excitement and I cant believe I did that. But its in. Now the shock was set up by Dan Kyle for my weight and riding style. Now do I have to do any other setting to the bike with it in? Like sag? And Will I be reversing whatever Dan did to the shock if I make adjustments?

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

You mean you are already out of the bedroom???? How long were you in that God forsaken place and away from that smoking hot woman you left at home???

If you were a Brutale rider instead of an F4 weenie you would most likely still be wearing her out and looking for suspension settings for the mattress instead of worrying about suspension on the bike

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Dan sends the shocks with the recommended Ohlins settings. The TTX shocks have proved race valving and he doesn't revalve the shocks just springs them correctly for you.
You will need to set the sag at 30-35mm of rider sag. I keep seeing a lot of reference to static sag here but Dan & myself believe only rider sag is important. You should then setup your front to be 40mm of rider sag.
Can anyone confirm or deny the stock spring is straight rate or progressive?

Setting up the TTX is easy. Compresion you want to dial it to be firm and compliant with just enough squat not to affect traction. Rebound, make sure it can come back from bumps without packing down. You are more than likely 3 clicks away from perfect on each setting which is why Dan and Ohlins are so great.

The spring will be straight, not progressive, in the OEM shock.

so he doesnt do any dailing in? Because when this was bought I was told all I would have to set was the sag and the shock was coming dialed in ready to go.

How is he supposed to set preload without the shock being installed and you sitting on the bike? He can set the bastic rebound and compression settings but you have to fine tune them after installation.

It is dialed in. To set the sag you adjust preload. Don't mess with the rebound or compression damping settings he has "dialed in".

I have one of Dan's TTX's on my Brutale. I have not done anything to it other than ride it. We checked the sag and it was fine. The bike feels fine and it is a definite improvement over the Sachs.
