Raising a suspension
« on: February 22, 2020, 03:44:20 AM »
Has anyone raised a factory lowered suspension? Are the forks or at least the tubes inner and outer the same? Will be replacing the cartridges with aftermarket non ESA ones.

I've not heard of anyone raising a "lowered" bike, will be interesting to see how you get on.

I'm the UK rep for The Shock Factory and can do you a custom length shock build.

We build to order, with no additional price for a custom spring rate to suit your weight & changes in length.

Any advice on getting rid of the codes after unplugging the front and rear ESA?

I've not tried myself, but apparently on the GS, the bike won't show any errors on the dashboard if you unplug the ESA. The XR probably works the same way

I know my 14 R shows '!DDC' on the dash when you unplug the shock or forks, you also have a permanent yellow triangle.

Fair enough, I guess things have moved on.
Might be worth having a chat to the dealer and asking if they can sort it in the ECU.

The dealer hooked it up the machine and they don't see the module so they can't code it out. The Andreani Group does make some dongles for the XR. Not sure how they work but as long as they keep the error lights off it all good. Well find out late March early April.
