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 2007 BMW G650XChallenge rear wheel starts to bounce at around 100kph,the faster you go the worse it gets, have had the wheel balanced tried different pressures, different tyres and adjusted preload...


Hi, Alex I feel your pain perhaps something on this list may help point you in the right direction and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

I have a 2007 Roadliner and want to adjust the rear suspension? How do I do this. Regards Bob


There is a single shock underneath the motorcycle in front of the rear wheel. On the shock is a large nut that will increase or decrease the tension on the shock.Increasing the tension is better for two up riding . Decreasing the tension is better for solo riding. You may need a special tool , a wrench with a hook or tooth on it to turn the nut. When setting up the suspension , with the bike loaded the way you intend to ride, bounce on the motorcycle. Whether you set it soft or hard , you want the front and back to drop together at the same time to prevent wash outs during extreme driving conditions such as fast corners or emergency turns and stops..
