Adjusting rear suspension
« on: Oct 03, 2021, 01:16:16 pm »
Iím trying to adjust my rear suspension as Iím sure itís setup for 2 up and itís killing the small of my back going over bumps. Whatís is the process for doing so Iím trying to use the included spanner from the exhaust side of the bike pulling towards the exhaust. That side twist the whole unit and I cant get it to budge pushing away from the exhaust side. Suggestions? Also Iím about 200ilbs would moving 2 be enough?

    Jack it up and get the weight off the rear wheel makes it easier, break the jam nut hose then loosen the preload nut
