Better spring option for the Ohlins shock

Question

Hello xtrainers,

I found a better spring option for the Ohlins shock from boano racing. The shocks are sourced out from the ones made for the 2007 era Honda TRX 450. Since this is an older shock model the spring series that it comes with is no longer in production. Boano had only up to a 5.4 spring rate in house and I needed a 5.8 so a call to Ohlins usa and I have a 5.8 that crosses over from another shock. I went with a 270mm instead of a 230mm for better clearance. It puts the hard metal bits above the intake boot for a little extra insurance from abrasion I would hope. Before and after pics… hope this helps others that are interested in this setup.
