To change the rear suspension spring pre-load setting, insert the adjustment tool supplied in the tool kit into the hole provided in the adjuster ring.
1. Rear suspension unit; 2. Tool
Turn the adjuster ring clockwise to increase spring pre-load, and anti-clockwise to decrease spring preload. When delivered from the factory, the pre-load adjuster will be set at position 1.
Warning! Ensure that the adjusters are set to the same setting on both rear suspension units. Settings that vary from left to right may affect handling and stability resulting in loss of motorcycle control, and an accident.
Suggested suspension settings
Adjuster settings are counted from one with position one being with the adjuster turned fully anti-clockwise. There are five positions in total. Position one gives the minimum amount of spring pre-load.
