It's printed on the spring itself, like this:
Greywolf55.... Tks for sharing. Awared how it's done, have performed 6-8 times, each time got my wife and children to assist. Sadly tire hang on air, bike weight and with my weight, A,B,C gives me almost same (1-2mm), which puzzle me if indeed my spring is too hard, got my wife and children to sit pillion, diff is 2-4mm.
OK here's what this code means:Found it Boy Racer.. YSS-46-20-30-220.
Thanks so very much again Boy Racer.. my thoughts too the spring might be just too heavy for me. Will surely try to check the sag with just one shock.OK I'm back:
YSS-46-20-30-220 Your springs
YSS-46-17-25-200 The spring rating from my 340mm YSS shocks (note the lower overall length as shorter shocks)
Let us all know how you get on - remember to totally unload the spring and rebound beforehand to get a true idea if this spring rate would work as you can readily buy YSS springs at half your current ratings YSS-46-10-15-220 which may well work for you.......will try the one arm shocks test in he coming weekend and report back.
Boy Racer....came back early today, first thing to do is the bike...Let us all know how you get on - remember to totally unload the spring and rebound beforehand to get a true idea if this
Managed to installed back the ori, the bike is much lower, as usuallty on YSS with double stand, back wheel just touching the ground and no freeplay, the ori on double stand, there is maybe 3-5cm gap. did a short ride only as want to make sure have screw all in place.OK try your stock ones, how long are they? I'm not sure what model you have?
Your YSS are Scrambler/Thruxton length, stock on other models are 340mm which may be better for you as I'm guessing you're not a tall guy? I went down to that length myself.
46-10-15-220 would be the same total strength as your test which from what you said probably took up all the total travel of the shock without any pre-load, did you feel it bottoming out? The other option 46-13-18-220 may have worked for me (one step down from mine) but I never tried them.46-13-18-220, 46-10-15-220, not sure if these would be too soft.
Thanks advise once again. Did about 150km today. I might be the opposite, the stock feels better in terms of comfort.(adjust to softest) We have lots of speed bump here and can feel the absorber actually works for the first time.46-10-15-220 would be the same total strength as your test which from what you
