    Ti Spring

    Just wanted to mention on here before i start putting it on forums\ebay etc, i've got a Diverse Suspension (DSP) ti rear shock spring that i've just taken off my AM, it's a 500lb, 2.25 stroke, 126mm free length, it weighs 285g.
    I got it from locotuning last year but have lost some weight since and i've bought a lighter one!
    65 plus postage to a fellow Niclolai owner.

    Diverse ti-springs fits CCDB, but are bit tight - Ive had at least 3 springs from DSP and measured ID has been always bit under 36,30mm - measured both ends and with two gauges. Tight fit is not a problem if there`s enough preload and not much s*it between coil and shock body, but that was also reason why CC started to use plastic covers in shock bodies, risk for rubbing body is real. Renton (RCS) coils are wider.

    Hi pergamonx, do you know if the diverse springs fit the Stoy or would Renton be the better option? On another point, have you ever tried the Diverse Dueler shock? Cheers.

    Ill believe that Stoy uses springs with normal 36plus mm ID, so DSP springs would be ok - don`t have Stoy so this is "educated guess".

    Not tested Dueler either - thought that some time ago but the shortest model they made then was 216mm e2e, which was too big for my small bike. Didn`t even know that nowadays there are smaller sizes available.

    Yeps. Noticed that from their site too. Dueler might be ok, but if Ill get any new coil shocks (already having CCDB and had Stage5, but sold it) there are two more interesting options - Avalanche and Stoy. Also X-Fusions seems interesting; my friend is importing them too and his comments have been really positive - really well built and lots of tuning options.

    I had an AVY for a while on my Fr.

    It was a DHS i brought off someone on here.

    Excellent shock.Craig at Avy was excellent aswell.

    Super smooth through the travel and never felt like it was struggling to cope with anything you could throw at it.

    Would definetely buy another.

    @norcosam - nearly all comments / reviews of Avy shocks has been similar than yours

    Have mailed with Craig too some time ago about shock tunes needed for Nicolai and also to my newer frame (not Nicolai this time...) and Ive a feeling that he really knows what he`s doing ... My main interest from Avy is Chubie; no need for remote piggybagging here. Testing Avy`s requires a also new springs; they use 1,5" ID springs in all shocks and nowdays I don`t have any of those....

    My mate has my old dhs.he has never used it.lol

    springs were a problem,but craig will sort you out with a few springs for a bit extra.
    perhaps go steel first and then order a Ti once you know and are happy with the spring weight
    .
    Chubie is a DHS without the remote resevoir.

    About the ti spring, DSP seems doesnt sell any ti sping which is not came with Dueler shock... But you can contact Spring Time, for your spec.
