This is my 2nd 919 with an Ohlins. The last one I had with a 180Nm needed all the preload to get a decent sag number and what felt like too much free sag. This bike and this Ohlins (190Nm) needs all the preload backed off just to get 5mm of free sag. Applying 1/2 the pre-load and there's no free-sag at all
Weren't the stock springs of the earlier models 1100lb'ers? I also remember reading how going a little stiffer will help with the rear end squat if the damping is good enough. I'm thinking I might just use this spring for now, is going from 190 to 180 that much of a difference?
