Shock absorber adjusters

Rear shock absorbers feature spring preload, rebound
and compression damping adjusters.
The adjuster (1, fig. 27.2 - 27.2) on the shock absorber
expansion reservoir - LH side of the frame - controls
compression damping.
The adjuster (2, fig. 26.1 - 26.2) on the left of the
connection holding the shock absorber to the swingarm
controls rebound damping.
Turn the adjusters (1 and 2) clockwise to increase
damping.
Two ring nuts (3, fig. 27.2 - 27.2) located on the top
section of the shock absorber are used to adjust the
outer spring preload.
To change spring preload, slacken the upper ring nut.
Then tighten or slacken the lower ring to increase or
decrease spring preload. Once preload has been set as
required, tighten the upper ring nut.
Warning
Use a specific pin wrench to turn the preload
adjusting nut. Be careful when turning the nut with the
wrench, as the pin may slip out of the ring nut recess and
you may hurt your hand hitting motorcycle parts.
