Re: Anybody here have Ohlins on their LT?
This morning I got my small floor jack home to free the front wheel. (I already had the center stand ratchet strapped to the skid plate), another tip I read here was to use an impact gun on the top front shock nut, I did and it worked great.
The rear shock spring does have some movement now the adjuster is mounted solidly, I can crank it down to test, but I did not pay attention to the initial setting, how many turns "in" from all the way "out" for a starting point??
I will have a new front tire mounted/balanced and continue with the brake/fuel lines after work this week....
