Wilbers Rear Suspension

Hey everyone, been a while since I wrote something here...

I have brand spanking new Wilbers Suspension waiting for it's new owner. Changed bikes before I even received the thing.

It is set for 90kg (195 lbs) rider. Part number is 641-0035-01.

Will ship anywhere in the world...

Let me know how 500$ + shipping sounds. It is in Istanbul right now and shipping with tracking code is around 50 USD to USA.

Is that the same unit that Islandboy has been using?
He's happy with his.

I have searched long and wide before buying this suspension... but as luck would have it I came across a GSX 1400 with 8k miles on it and had to have it.

Effe,

What does 1100xx 2006 mean?
Isn't it for your 2004 919? (aka 900 Hornet)
It is impossible that it was for your 2006 Piaggio Carnaby.

2
Suggest you add some additional info re the types of adjustability the shock has:
Spring Preload?
Low Speed Compression?
High Speed Compression?
Low Speed Rebound?
Eye to eye free length?

3
Seeing as you never put it on, you can't offer comments re the difference it makes.
Islandboy can, because he has the same unit.
See if you can find his review and comments and repost them.
Islandboy is very helpful...................

I sold my Hornet over 2 years ago. Bought a blackbird 2006. Now the blackbird is gone and riding a Gsx.

Found the invoice for it as well. It doesn't answer your questions.

The only info is that the shock is set for 95kg rider, riding 25% with passenger with 60kg weight including the gear.

Ahhh, now I get it, the unit was for your 2006 Blackbird.
By the way, all the questions should easily be answerable by simply examining the shock visually.
If there is only one damping adjuster, it will be for low speed rebound.
If there are two, they will be for low speed rebound and low speed compression.
If there are three, they will be for low speed rebound, low speed compression and high speed compression.
If there is a jam nut at one end of the shock, loosen it, back it off, and see how much the eye fitting can be threaded upwards or downwards, and you'll be able to tell if the design is for length adjustability.
No typical buyer is going to spend time trying to investigate the shock by a part number.

Ok I am including several more pics.

59/59 internal Diameter.
150 n/mm Spring rate
165 mm Spring length
15mm Preload

Info in the documents are in German so taking me sometime to translate.

There 2 adjusters on top of the shock, 2 on the reservoir and 1 length adjuster at the bottom.

So, the shock is a "three way", "length adjustable" with "adjustable preload" and has an "external (aka remote) reservoir".
The low speed rebound adjuster is at the bottom of the shock body.
The compression adjusterS are on the reservoir.
There is a separate adjuster for high speed compression and low speed compression adjustments.
