You can get yourself a couple more inches of throw by doing the NC750x swap out that only costs about C-note. Check my write up linked in my signature for details. I'm a petite huge 255# bundle of joy and I'm quite pleased with the results.I have my rear suspension maxed out. Is there a coil aftermarket that can help me out? Give my fat ass more give.
congratulations! wilbers is a great brand!Forget to mention that Wilbers makes 3 types for CTX700: without rebound adjust 300 euros, with rebound adjust 430 euros and with separate reservoir 620 euros, all including posting costs and individual settings made by Wilbers.
Thanks. I have now a long waiting, it takes over a month to have it in my hands, because all orders are delivered straight from the manufacturer with individual settings. I wonder why eBay didn't give hits to USA. It is pity if Wilbers are not available in USA, because Wilbers is priced very close YSS and would be a good alternative. I don't know are they equal to Ohlins, but individial settings make a huge advantage.congratulations! wilbers is a great brand!
Where did you order it? www.wilbers-shop.de says that they will deliver it in two weeks.Thanks.

I don't want to pay 100 Euros more for a couple weeks
Many thanks Ken. For some reason I already know that my English is broken . Only way I could learn practical English instead of putting words in a row would be to move to UK or USA. Younger people do it today and speak two or three languages, someones even more. In my case I have to be content of if people roughly understand my line of thought. On another forum I took part in a test trying to define where everyone is from, based on the used dictionary and grammatics, and I made the test twice trying to alter words and sentences. Both tests gave me Oxford, lol. Have to admit that someones speaking fluent English got Indian English regardless of the place where they were born.howdy maurimy,
thanks for your contributions to the forum.
here in the states, as we call it, i would install the muffler you have and if necessary when you take the motorcycle in for warranty work, simply re-install the original. here, no-one would notice the different muffler to make note of it when routine service is done in the shop. depending on what you bought and whether you like the look or sound or care that it might be a little lighter in weight, you should at least give it a try.
by the way, though there are a few attention getting differences in how you say things, you are communicating well in english. i'm sure you already know that. i can read a bit of several languages but could not communicate in anything other than english. well done.
Hi Maurimy, I would very much like to do the shock replacement exactly as you have it above. I would like to have some extra height for the bike and also the ease of using the center stand. I can NOT get it on the center stand unless 2 people help me. So..... can you give some sort of model number you got of the Ohlin. I sure hopw the part numbers are universal worldwide. Thanks for your help, ChuckSo, after sending Wilbers back I ordered Ohlins made for NC. The price was 566 euros including delivery costs. I installed it on Thursday. The rise was around 40 mm, riders sag with factory settings 50 mm. Needed to add a block to the kickstand to keep it working. Good news, now the center stand (Hepco et Becker) can be done by toes and thanks for the extra 40mm, the standing stability is much better in traffic lights and jams with more straightened legs! Before I was sitting my heels at ground like on WC. But I am still going on and ordered from a German dealer 20mm lowering links (20 euros, stainless steel). After them installed the rise should be 20 mm and I can add coil compression to achieve 25 % rider sag, meaning a bit below 40mm sag. I hope I can say that it is over after that all done.
Another project is a muffler swap. I already have a new one, LeoVince made for NC and homologated in EU . The joint tube needed some modifications, done, also bracket modifications, but I still hesitate to install it because of the factory warranty, which ends March 2021.
