Ohlins Rear Shock for Rally HONDA CRF 250L RALLY 2017-2020

The single biggest complaint from CRF 250l and Rally owners is that the suspension is sprung way too light and the damping is inadequate. The bike seems to be set up for a 100-pound beginner rider- Here's how to fix that.  A heavier spring or adjusting the pre-load will not resolve the issue. 

Ohlins STX46 Shock for 2017-2018 HONDA CRF 250L Rally $748 
The shock comes with 2 spring options included. The factory-installed (64Nm/mm-6.53Kg/mm) spring on the shock is for riders up to 175 lbs (80 kg) and the stiffer (7.0Nm - 7.15Kg/mm) is for riders 175 lbs-215 lbs (80-98 kg). We also offer an extra Heavy Ohlins Spring (75 Nm/mm- 7.65Kg/mm) for 225 lb-260 lb riders (102-118 kg) available above for an additional $96  We can install the heavy spring or extra heavy spring for $85 installation fee for you if you like.  Simply add the spring install service to your cart and we will swap the springs (Only available for Rally models), usually the same day you place your order, so there will be no delay in shipping. (If you are installing on an ABS model, please contact us for ABS install supplement sheet)

 PS- If you are installing the kit yourself, PLEASE NOTE! 

The kit comes with great instructions and there is an installation video below.  
We recently installed the kits on our Rally’s and noted 3 things that are sort of glossed over in the instructions.  
 
1- When installing the rear shock, the remote reservoir line at the top of the shock must be oriented so the line is positioned towards the rear of the bike and the line routed around the left side of the shock towards the front of the bike where the reservoir mounts on the left side of the engine.  
 
2-Removing the top shock bolt isn’t too hard, but re-installation takes 2 people.  One to operate a ratchet installing the top shock bolt from the right side of the bike and a second person to position the nut in place from the left side of the bike using a magnetic pickup
tool or by taping the nut to the end of a screwdriver.  The air box/battery bracket is what’s in the way- 
3- To remove the fork spring, you need to remove a steel retaining clip located inside the fork tube at the top of the spring. It takes 2 people to do this. One to use a flat blade screwdriver or similar tool to depress the spring a bit while the other person uses a dental pick or similar tool to pull the retainer clip out of the groove. There's not a lot of preload on the spring, so it's not dangerous, it's just a tight space that requires 3- 4 hands! :-)
