How can adjust front shock f650gs 2007

It depends on what you want to adjust. There is no screw type adjustment on the shock itself.

If you are after a different feel, this can only be done by replacing the fork oil with a different grade or amount.

Typically the shocks will have a 10W oil and a 120mm air gap. Using a thicker oil will make then slower, thinner oil makes them faster.

Smaller air gap makes them harder, larger air gap softer.

My problam is my hight

Hello, Most all motorcycles with Shocks have an Adjustment on the "Bottom" of the Shock which makes the Shock "Firmer or Softer". By making the Shock "Softer" (Lowering it) will Lower the Bike when you sit on it. Making it "Firmer" (raising it) will make it Higher. The Firmest/Tallest Position on the Shock is usually best for riding Two Adults so that the Weight doesn't let the Rear Fender drop onto the Rotating Rear Tire. You can also Measure the Length of your Shock (Measured from Center to Center of the Mounting Bolts) and go to your Local Motorcycle Salvage Yard and buy a Pair of Shocks that will be 1"-2" Shorter and Make Sure that they are from a Bike that is Similar in Weight and Size! (You don't want to put a set of 125cc Shocks on a 900cc bike) but Please check your Rear Fender Cleareance First and make sure that you can lower the bike this much!!! Most of the Motorcycles that I Lower, I Never go more than 2" unless I am Positive that I have the "Clearence"!!! Thanks Azharleybob

How do i adjust the shocks on a 93 honda shadow vt1100

if it is adjustable, then on the shock should be a 5 step ring that can be turned, see if current position is on 2 or 3.Normally when turning counter-clock wise will be much softer or harder the other way. just try it.

My 05 r1 has now done 18000 miles and the shock and forks are feeling a bit tired.i dont have the money or the need for an expensive aftermarket race shock.i was thinking of getting a combination fork and...

Change your fork oil to something more suited to your driving style. Those forks may be feeling tired, but they works nearly as hard as your valves. The oil has most likely broken down and needs replacement anyway. Do some shopping and ask the experts what is best for your cruising preferences, If you need a stiffer or softer ride try inserting a new set of springs. Remember coil windings as well as fork oil determine the cushion in your ride.

Any way to adjust the rear shocks on a 1996 vulcan 1500-a10 ?

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
