    How are you supporting the bike when swapping it?

    1 used the center stand and a ratchet strap to raise and lower the rear wheel/swingarm to line things up

    I don't have a centerstand. Might have to rig something up that attaches where it would.

    Got it on.

    Ended up just flipping the right footpeg upside down and using a floor jack under it. Worked great.

    Didn't have to do any clearancing. It's close but not touching.



    A piece of info that might be helpful: my suspension guy ordered a spring one size longer than what Racetech suggested, and it works great with no spacer etc. That'll save you a few bucks and looks better IMO.

    I just got around to finally installing my 2014 Tuono V4 Sachs shock. It does not have the length adjusters but I can confirm that it fits on a 2017 LED NC750X, although the reservoir does press on the plastics.

    I went with the stock springs and max'd out preload settings but still couldn't get a proper sag setting. Bike was squatting a lot and slower to turn. However, together with the Showa Dual Bending Valves up front, the ride is now so much better than with the stock shocks! No more jarring shocks from rough roads. It also corners and holds a line like it's on rails and this is with the soft springs.

    I set the compression and rebound according to recommendations from the forum below as a starting ball park, and it worked pretty well for my 80kg (175 lbs) weight.
    Compression 1 turns from max out
    Rebound 20 turns in from max out

    I'd be ordering new springs based on the recommendations in the previous posts. Thanks for the info guys.
