WTB or Trade: 919 Ohlins Shock Spring

Anyone happen to have a 01093-74-190 L197 lying around? It's the one I believe comes with the shock from Ohlins.

I have a -79 I could trade for as well

The HO-201 comes with a 180Nm spring it is good from about 170lbs to around 224lbs in gear!

I do have a 190Nm in stock. To the best of my knowledge it is the last new one in existence Literally...

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?

You are looking for ride quality not free sag. Additionally you are doing it on a bike with no rising rate linkage that uses massively high rate springs. It's not as critical as it would be on a GSXR750 with half rate springs where a mm or two of ride height can be the difference between making the turn on the gas or having to let out of it etc. With the valving correct which it is in the HO201 you only really need to find a spring that rides in the middle of the shock stroke and softer is generally better. An undersprung bike can be ridden quite effectively whereas an oversprung bike is just a miserable experience.
