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!

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

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!
