Going through this new to me bike I am looking to see what range rider the springs are for.

The front spring is 0196-13/58 L214 which seems to translate to a 331 lb spring.

The rear is 01092- 69/170 L194 which is a 971 lb spring.

I couldn't find any info on the the weight of the stock springs.

I'm about 250 with gear. Anybody know if this is in the ball park?


Used the information below:

1091-34/100 is an example of a code you will find on an Ohlins shock spring. Using the below charts you can decode what you are looking at.

The 1091 refers to the diameter and the length of the spring. Almost all Ohlins springs have a diameter of 57mm so thats easy, the 1091 in this case means it has a 160mm length (when not on the shock)

The -34 is the spring rate. For some unknown reason Ohlins uses its own numbers to label rate, but below on the rate conversion chart you can cross reference this number. In this case a -34 is a 100nm or 10.19kg or 571lb spring

The /100 is the springs rate in Newton meters, but without the decimal. In this case the /100 means its a 100n/m spring.
