Been reading through old posts.

Have 04 650 with 96k on it. Olin shock on back. Fronts need some work, but this is my limited use offroading/hunting bike that I normally use during fall. Ride the other bikes for the rest of summer.

Hence the economy rebuild.

I'm damn sure I'll replace the spring with heavier for my 230lb. Which I should have done a while ago.

I looked at these emulators... Not sure I want to go that far. Suggestions? Just go for the spring and new bushings?

With your mileage replacing bushing, seals, and fluid wouldn't be a waste of money. With your weight and off roading, heavier springs would be a good idea, maybe with heavier fluid. I'd start with that and see how you like it. Personally with the limited use you seem to use the bike I wouldn't spend much more.

👌 ya, that's what I'm thinking. Although the ohlins is so nice on back rear, would be cool to match the front and have buttery ride. Especially in the off-road.

Which Ohlins rear are you using? It looks like they only offer one which fits the '21 Wee, and I haven't found it widely available, at least in the US.

Bought it 4 or so years ago. Wouldn't surprise me if it's discontinued. Can barely get disc brakes for 04 vstrom these days.
