The spring pre-load adjuster has
positions for different load or riding
Use a pin spanner ( ) to adjust the rear
shock spring pre-load.
Position 1: for a light load and smooth

spring pre-load for stiffer rear suspension.)
Servicing Your Honda
Always adjust the shock absorber position
in sequence (1-2-3-4-5-6-7 or 7-6-5-4-3-2-
1). Attempting to adjust directly from 1 to
7 or 7 to 1 may damage the shock absorber.
