Gents With TTX/Street Triple Whats Your Preload?

I just got my TTX Shock back from the suspension folkes and some of my fellow track riders believe that the preload on the rear shock is a bit much.

I ride with a dude who has a 13' version of my bike 15' and has the exact rear setup as I do. But he's 165 without gear and I'm 195 without gear.

His preload is out 7 threads and mine is out 14 threads. I have a 1.0 spring on the shock, which should be good for my weight.

Just seeing what other people have.

Unfortunately, SAG wasn't set...so for me to do it now on the street would be hard to tell, as I don't push it on the street/canyons. But will have the SAG done when I get back to the track.

Cheers!

All you need to set your rear sag is a couple of friends and 5 minutes.
