Hi all

I’m a scrambler newbie! Recently picked up a 2014 Urban Enduro and love it.

The previous owner had a nitro rear shock and Andrieani cartridges on the front. To me the suspension feels a bit harsh and I’d like to soften it up a tad. I find myself hanging on for dear life on a bumpy road! I don’t know what I’m doing so don’t want to fiddle with it. Am I likely to be charged a fortune by my local Ducati dealer to set it up for me?

Also I have the original parts. Are these likely to be worth anything if I post them on eBay? Seeing as the bike has nearly a grands worth of upgrades I don’t imagine I would want to change them back.

I have Andreani front and a rear M Shock. When someone orders the bits they provide spring rates to match a riders weight. I installed the rear shock but got a specialist suspension ace to install front cartridges and set up the suspension to work together. Then they kept in touch by email giving me suggestions to fine tune the forks over a couple of weeks until I was real happy with the set up.

I would never trust a dealer to do this though. Where you located?

Your about 1 hour 45 mins from FTR Suspension who I used. They are brilliant and highly recommended but look local as you may have a highly regarded specialist in your area. I would rather give the money to a specialist then a Ducati dealer as I would know I am getting moneys worth and job done properly

I would also recommend FTR - he did my forks mail order - then changed springs to lower weight - as the recommended by Andreani for my weight resulted in too little travel.

They supported by email too for fine tuning.

Give them a call... take a ride there (or in van) have them do their thing.... you will be happy...

The original parts are worth next to nothing. Supply is high, and demand is nonexistent.

That suspension setup should NOT be throwing you around on the road. Rear spring replacement is one of the single most noticeable changes I made to my bike (along with the exhaust). Any bike shop worth anything should be able to adjust it for your weight. And any cost incurred doing this will be well worth it.
