When they break into my garage, they'll nick the K if they're strong, and the bicycles.
After that, they'll be needing help to find the valuable stuff.  ;)

Agreed with the photo stuff - v good idea.

Wilbers, makes by far the best Shock absorbers , ofcourse we hear about ohlins wp etc. Since they make products for those whomreally lay attention to the detail.
Order front and rear for  my f800st in 2011 ,, the service, support, after sale support and their products are the best I've encounter in my 40 years of riding a motorcycle .

C-spanner for the front

What is the correct C-spanner to adjust a front shock (non-ESA)? The size of the C-spanner, is it the diameter of the shock?

And is it even possible to access the collar to adjust it on the front?
