    If the rings are at the lowest part of the threads the spring is compressed (pre-loaded) as much as it is possible to do and the sag will be at it's minimum - making the rear of the bike as high off the ground as possible

    I'm trying to buy the adjuster wrenches. While everything online says the wrenches are universal I found a couple that say they don't work with the NC. Any ideas what to type into Amazon to get wrenches that will work for us?

    I believe I used a mallet and a long drift to tap the locking ring loose and then tighten the adjuster ring and lock it back in place.

    Save your money and don't buy "hook spanners" for the adjuster rings because the space available is minimal. I have a Cogent shock now but when I had the standard shock I used a long drift punch and brass hammer.

    One trick I found helps a lot is to paint a black stripe across the adjuster. Without some sort of reference, it's difficult to know when you've made one complete turn of the adjuster. On my Cogent adjuster, I have a thick line to indicate one full turn and a thin line to indicate a half turn.

    There’s not really a part number. It’s basically the Moab KLR650 shock on the Cogent Dynamics web site. They custom fit a spring based on your weight.

    heh, i just grabbed a nearly new(low mile) rear shock from an Aprilla for a smokin' deal that i simply could not pass up. Now to get it installed and see how it fits my riding style. Hopefully the original Aprilla spring will work, if not i too will be getting a new spring for it. I tip the scales pretty heavy compared to most of you guys at 230lbs, so here's to being hopeful hah(and before someone smarts off, no PIE has nothing to do with it...just ask me. haha)! :{)
