I decided it was time to get the rear spring changes and make my ES more usable. As it is now the setting has to be at two helmets to keep from bottoming and the damping set to normal for good handling. I do not have any luggage on the bike yet, but I do have some ordered. Issue is at that point I will be maxed out solo with gear and may still to have enough spring. I decided to go done the Eibach trail with spacer. Based on my calculations I will be about where I a, at not but with preload set on solo rider. Hopes are this will allow my ES to function well with my weight of 220. I found the Lazy R machine shop who specializes in one off stuff and was happy to make the spacer for me. I went with 8mm thickness to make sure and not his coil bind when fully loaded and two up. Pluse I like less preload than most mixed with a bit heavier spring. I find it works better for the g-out situation and plusher over all. Hope to get to work on the install tomorrow.
