Put 45 lbs of air in the rear shock with a low volume air pump that has a check valve in the hose so that it does not bleed off the air when you take the air hose off of the bike the air fitting is located on the right side of the bike on top of the side cover looks just like a valve stem for a tire

How do I adjust the unishock on my 1996 1300cc yamaha royal star? Bottoms out with two people on it


It should either have a separate adjuster or there will likely be a tool included in the tool kit to turn the adjustment on the bottom of the shock. It is easiest to make the adjustment with the rear tire off the ground

Adjust spring preload


There are no preload, compression or rebound adjustments on either end of a 1996 Royal Star. The front fork characteristics can be changed by internal modifications to the front fork piston and a change in fork oil weight (stock is 5W), lengthening the spacers immediately beneath the cap bolt, or addition of progressive springs. The rear shock absorber assembly is a unit with no serviceable parts, no modifications are practical. The only aftermarket suspension parts I've found for the 1996-1998 Royal Stars are kits offered by Hyperpro (ECM), they list kits for the front forks SP-YA13-SSA05 and the rear SP-YA13-SSB05; however, since the rear kit is purported to fit all years from 1996 to the present, and the rear suspension was redesigned for the 2002 model year, I suspect that you may find that the rear kit doesn't work at all.
