Nice, I have my penske with 600lb/in spring sitting on the bench awaiting install. Have you dialed it in yet and/or adjusted the ride height?
Not yet. Just got it back from the shop haven't had time to tweak it.had to go to work today.
Rode to work and it's a little stiff. The card says it was tuned to 600 but the spring said 800. Im not a suspension guy so this is uncharted territory. I got a lot of play to loosen it up so I'm gonna tweak it for my weight then count the clicks for when me and the gf go out for a ride. A few clicks looser and I think I'll be on cloud nine.
The stock shock would just bottom out when we rode. This one feels like we would be perfect two up but solo I gotta turn it down a little. I had a hell of a time adjusting the stock shock with the spanner tool. I chose the penske cause it was tuned for my weight. Scott took care of me. Told him I was a heavy guy and needed a shock that could lug me and the misses around. He set me up. I called and asked him if I needed to do anything else. He said nope, plug and play, tuned for you.
He told me there's room to go either way but its at a neutral setting. Like I said it was a little stiff for me but my gf sat down with me and it felt nice. I think he set it a little stiff cause I told him that I was concerned because I was worried the shock wouldn't be able to support me.
Not having to rip out the side to adjust is making me grin already.
As for the spanner, too bad I only used it once before I decided to toss the spring altogether. It'll end up in a good home. I'm sure there are other Vic riders who could make good use of it.
I'll post updates on what setting ultimately worked for me once I fine tune it.
