Rode the Dieci to Dave Moss suspension clinic at Pro Italia. Besides realizing that my clutch is going i was advised that my SW rear shocks has air in it needs an overhaul. Do I have an option to go with an Ohlin rear shock? Other options other than Ohlins?

I had one built by Maxton in the UK many years ago - don't know if they still have the spec. YB8e has an Ohlins on.

Clutch is most likely to be slave or master, rather than the clutch itself. There's no adjustment.

Wilbers are fantastic... And well priced from this seller!

Hi

Looking for a replacement for my YB10 rear shock - Wilbers list a YB8 fitment (but not a 10). Are they exactly the same fitment?
Thanks
David

It doesn't really matter that much. When I needed a new shock for the bb1, Wilbers built me one. I think it's the only bb1 shock they have made so far.
My point is that Wilbers will build what you need, but they will of course need some info regarding the old shock, bike, wheights and dimensions.
Other here will surely tell you if YB8 and YB10 share the same shock.

Dieci has the same frame and same swing arm as an 8. So very likely same shock. Original on the 8 was a Marzocchi.
