I need to know the factory settings for the front and rear suspension on my 2004 Honda cb1300

There is no factory setting. Each motorcycle needs to be set up by the rider for there particular weight. How you set it up depends on whether both the front and rear suspension are adjustable or not. Basically when you sit on the motorcycle with your gear on you want the front and the back of the motorcycle to drop at the same time. This mostly comes into play on hard or extreme cornering. If the front is too soft, the front wheel might wash out first affectively placing you in the face plant position. Likewise if the back slides out first, and it does not go too far,you at least have a chance to recover. Worst case scenario you will high side and again achieve the face plant position. If you have adjustable pressure on the front forks set the front air pressure first to soft or stiff (depending on which you prefer) , then tighten or loosen the spring on the rear shock or, raise or lower the rear shock air pressure to achieve the front and back both dropping at the same time when you bounce on the seat.If there is no front fork adjustment then adjust the back to match the front. If you carry a passenger the rear will need to be stiffened . At least be aware of the difference in handling, if you decide not to readjust for a short drive, to take it easy with passenger on the back. If you are adjusting clicker shocks, Turn the screws and count the clicks. Best starting point is the middle position (5 out of ten). Make minor adjustments to the dampening from there.

Hi I have a problem, I've just recently bought a new mountain bike from eBay. It's a mongoose, can you tell me how to tighten the suspension, so it's for road use not cross country. I deflated the air...

Since you've let the air out of the shock you need to go to a Bike Shop for a refill anyway because a normal pump doesn't reach the pressures supplied by a shock pump. While you're there, have them set the bike up for your preferences and instruct you in shock operation.

Rear suspension dampers locked up, no suspension what so ever. car just been in for oil change and filter. on leaving garage rear suspension not working properly.

beats me, as they are a non servicable item(they either work or not)but to lock up solid???(normally the corner with the problem just hops about,bounces.)the original/first owner did have the transit blocks removed from inside the rear springs??
just a thought if you are not the first owner has someone fitted adjustable shockers?

Stock settings for rear suspension yz 125 2003

When I get stuck or want to set up the suspension settings on any MX bike(Ive owned about 20 different types) I adjust all the settings in the middle of the range & fine tune the adjustments from there.Screw the adjusters all the way in.As you unscrew them count the clicks untill all the way out.Now go back in to the half way point(counting the clicks as you go). This will give you a starting point. Typically most MX'ers factory suspension settings eill be one or two clicks in or out of the middle position so as to offer you plenty of adjustment either way.
The only setting that this dosn't apply to is the spring pre-load but you can usually tell if it has been adjusted by the adjusting(castle type)nuts. This applies to rear shock preload only.
Hope this helps.

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

Rear suspension stuck down. 96 crown victoria

these cars try to compensate for weight so the car will deflat the system to lower the rear when jacked up so when you put the car back down it almost touches the ground like a low rider, i think this is what you mean by suspension stuck down?? so all you have to do is start it. it should automatically adjust its self to the right inflation.bringing the car back up to position

Adjusting rear suspension

the rear shock is adjustable, the ring below the spring turns and locks onto a kind of peg on the body of the shock. being that your bike is an 86 it may even be time for new shocks or an upgrade to stiffer. if you do adjust then make sure both sides are on the same setting. as far as tools needed some shocks can be done by hand with help from someone lifting the weight up on the back end. i dont know what kind of tools as i cant find a good pic online of your bike but maybe a C spanner / wrench
