Thanks Chris for the preverbal kick up the arse.  :028:

I collected the Sealy Spring compression tools this morning from the Post Office. Just waiting for the K-Tech spring to be delivered today.

As you previously mentioned about the sharp edge of the compression hook protectors, I'll be running a round file over the edges , so hopefully won't mark the spring paint layer.

Well .. That was easy. In less than an hour the shock was out, spring replaced and shock back in. Rider Sag set.

I was at 45mm sag at fully wound in on the OE spring. I am now at 45mm at 8 clicks out. I also know I can get 40mm sag at 3 clicks out. Happy days. :028:

Sooty .. If you go back to page 2 you'll see the picture of the spring and part number, but yes that is the spring 54 and 57 is the Internal diameter of the spring coil ends. the 190 is the length and the 110 is the newtons.

This is something I need to do as I am on 45mm sag fully wound in. Have you had a chance to ride it yet since you swapped springs.
