Rear shock absorber adjusters
The shock absorber has external adjusters that enable you to
adjust the setup to suit the load on the motorcycle.
The adjuster (1) located on the left-hand side, where the
upper end of the shock absorber is attached to the rear
subframe, controls rebound damping.
Turn the adjuster (1) clockwise to increase damping, or
counter-clockwise to reduce damping.
The two nuts (2) on the upper part of the shock absorber
serve to adjust the preload on the external spring. To change
spring preload, slacken off the upper lock nut. Then TIGHTEN
or SLACKEN the lower ring nut to INCREASE or DECREASE
STANDARD setting from the fully closed position
- turn the adjuster (1) by 8 clicks from Max (fully closed).
Spring preload: 20 mm from Min (fully unloaded).
When adjusting the spring preload, do not exceed a
spring length of 181 mm to avoid damaging the swingarm.
The shock absorber is filled with gas under pressure
and may cause severe damage if taken apart by unskilled
