Not positive about this bike... I have an older bike that has a step positioner that requires a special tool (you can use a pair of channel-locks). The higher you go the stiffer the ride the lower you got less tension on the spring, so the easier the ride. New bikes (like yours) sometimes have a nitrogen filled assist canister with a flat head screw. That flat head screw should have an arrow pointing in both right and left directions, on one end is a pos. (+) symbol and the other is a minus (-). Turn toward the pos for a stiffer ride, toward the min a softer ride!!

Good Luck

My 2002 honda shadow's front end wobbles badly when I take my hands off of the handle bars.


Hi, Anonymous 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.

4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
