hey Ultra, I'm running an Eibach 900# spring now, too, after dropping a few pounds. Way lighter than the hyperpro spring ELKA supplies, as a sidenote, and now i'm in the sweet spot, too. My #'s are in the sweet spot, too.

As I said mine came with the 950 Eibach , directly from the ELKA shop. My weight 200 lbs + wife130 , a loaded top box and no complaints , its a smooth ride now.

anyone taken apart their Elka, yet?
I've lost a few pounds, slowed down, and the roads are just getting worse, so a revalve is coming. Just for the heck of it, I thought I'd lose a few pounds of nitrogen, keeping it above 140#, just to see if I could notice an effect on compression, which would have been mostly on the low speed end. To my surprise, my nitro pressure was 90#. Not so good. Brought it up to 120# just to see if I could notice a diff in the damping. I couldn't.
So, revalve time coming up, it's on the original oil, too.

How is your Elka holding up?
