The adjustment on the rear shock is limited to pre load only.

Mine just uses the spring since the shock shat itself, makes for interesting and OMFG scare riding! Try that.

Can't wait till get new one. I have seen somewhere that you can get full adjustable aftermarket shocks, that's the best idea I reckon.

To adjust the pre-load on my shock i had to get it out, put it in a vice and wack the adjuster with a hammer and chisel whilst my mate held the spring back with a crowbar, only got it about three notches up after all that

full adjustable ones can cost up with $1000 from different places but they would be custom build to your bike and your personaly size, so they would be damn worth it!!

I managed to adjust mine in 10 minutes, after a lot of farking around initially, using a cheap pair of long handled multi-grips and a long flat screw driver.

I had to remove seat and the left foot peg to again as much access as possible. I would grip the top of the shock, twist it half way to the next notch, wedge the screwdriver from the top, move the grips a few degrees and twist again until it jumped to the next setting - then repeat and rinse  :wink:
