SOURCE: Adjustable rear shocks
There are 2 holes at the base of the shock absorbers. Turn them clockwise for a softer drive. At factory they are setted at 3. THey go from 1 to 6.

dear susan shock adjustment for the rear shock are done with c wrench. you will notice at the top of the shocks there is a ring with 3 adjustment cams. the wrench is placed in the two holes you see on the shock opposite each other this is where the wrench fits you simply turn either direction for softer or harder ride. this adjustment puts more or less tension on the spring. i own a 96 vulcan as well hope this will help you jim

The shock stud is removed by compressing the shock with a 20 ton press. Then you release the inner circlip and the unit comes apart. You should take care if you decide to do this. The shock compression is a very dangerous thing. I would recommend taking the shocks off, and taking it to a dealer where they shouldn't charge you more than 1 hour do disassemble and reassemble.

Adjusting the rear shock is a realitively simply process, once you expose the shock.
On the left side of the bike, use your key to remove the tool box cover. Remove the inner cover from the tool box and remove the tools that came with the bike. The tool box itself is held in with 2 - 10 mm hex head screws (which also have philips head slots). Remove the tool box.
Now the rear shock absorber should be visible. Use the spanner wrench and handle extension in your tool kit to make the desired adjustments to the shock absorber.
Reverse the process to put everything back together.

Hi Patti, Road Kings have air shocks at the rear. You will need a FL touring hand pump and adjust the air pressure accordingly to your weight/load.
