I like the manaul adjustment on the AT suspension and generally don't have a problem with it. I am at 38% sag at the rear with 125kg load at max preload though. To me this is too soft, even for normal weight riders with gear (mentioned elsewhere on this forum). I thought it would be useful to chart the rear sag settings Vs preload. This might give others, at a more normal weight (!), plus panniers/racks/luggage/tent etc. a view of what their sag might look like. e.g. 75Kg rider and 50Kg pillion/luggage.
I have a HyperPro spring coming today, it should just raise me 20mm across the board and allow me to reach 30% sag on a preload of 35 clicks. I can't fit it for a couple of weeks but I have no doubt as to their claim on the extra 20mm. When further loaded or with pillion I will just have to work on a higher sag % front and back, that is not a disaster in itself unless I am riding aggresively off-road (which I don't). At least the Hyperpro will balance the front and back somewhat which is the main goal.
I initially considered the Touratech +20mm kit which is front and back springs but I never had a problem achieving 30% sag at the front. That kit uses the exact same Hyperpro rear spring so it was a no brainer to just swap the rear spring at a very much lower cost than the whole kit. Rugged Roads obliged in this respect.
