RS Coil Lyrik problem (?)
I’ve just bought some Lyriks (the 170DH kind) off a guy here (no complaints with the sellar whatsoever). He has just told me that the spring is extra soft, due to him weighing 8.5st. I weigh 11.5st, so I understand that I will need to change the spring. Not a problem.
My question is: Do you reckon it would be ok to ride it tomorrow with the extra soft spring? I obviously don’t want to do any damage to them as they are in brilliant condition.
He has supplied the spare springs so I do have one to fit when I can get round to it.Posted 6 years agopaulrockliffeMember
It won’t break anything, but it’s a fairly straightforward job to swap them over.
Undo bottom nut, undo allen bolt at travel adjust knob, remove adjuster mechanism. Big spanner on the top and unscrew the spring assembly and lower spring mount. Swap lower spring mount to new spring and reverse what you’ve already done. Half an hour tops.Posted 6 years agotomasoSubscriber
When you undo the bottom allen bolt only take it out 75% and then give it a whach with a soft faced hammer to ease the spring from its seat. Then you can just pull the spring out when you undo the top cap.
Go online and download the Rockshox manual and if you are still unsure have a quick look on youtube for a vid.Posted 6 years ago
I’d say one down from the one RS recommend on their website, so if they say firm go medium (medium is red).Posted 6 years ago
