Title: Ohlins Help
Post by: Wolverine on May 25, 2018, 09:29:20 pm
Just picked up a used 2009 today and it has Ohlins installed on the rear.. Can't find a model number to understand the best way to adjust this.

If I could figure out how to get pics on here I will post some

Thanks that does help, I believe I found I have the KA709 model for the 08-09

Was hoping I could somehow get the bike a little lower with some adjustment but that aint gonna happen...

you didn't mention model number, so I just went on what I found, STX46 or KA109,
Didn't download it myself, just giving you a possible link...

I have an Ohlins and it came with a generic owners manual. Page 11 covers adjusting length
