    I need to make a adjustment to my shock...

    Does anyone know where I can find a spring compressor tool to suit an Ohlins rear shock in Chiang Mai?

    Cheers!

    There's suposed to be a shock rebuild shop in Nong Hoi somewhere. They might have something that will work.

    I'm not sure if this is the shop or not, but you could try this one

    Thanks David,

    I will try them when I get back. Also I'm planning to build a spring compressor tool while here at work...

    Anyone there that can tell me the diameter of the spring keeper on a Ohlins shock? I think it's about 75mm but I would like the exact figure...

    Cheers

    How did you go - were you able to build the spring compressor tool at work?

    yes, made one at work. 200 Baht for the 12mm threaded rod and nuts. 1/4 inch steel plates cut from scrap. BTW Ohlins spring keeper is 71.5mm so hole is 72mm, welded a ring to the lower plate to stop shock from sliding out. (there is a LOT of tension when you compress the spring!)

    Works fine, just a little slow winding the nuts up/down but thats not a problem .
    cheers!
