SOURCE: 1997 Honda Magna VF45c 750 clutch adjustment

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.

SOURCE: Vulcan 800A (not Classic) Can you adjust the rear shock?

There is a shock company that makes progressive shocks for your bike. That is also the name of the shock, and a lot of them are adjustable eye to eye length. But they are not cheap.

De-cell popping is usually caused by a lean condition. Sounds like you could use a Dynojet kit.

Adjust rear shocks, 1 - 5, which is stiffer?


Hi, Kevin if you're talking about the shocks on your dune buggy I can't help you, however if you are talking about your motorcycle shocks you're in luck, the setting that compresses the spring the most will be the stiffest. For more information about your issue please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Adjust rear shocks on a 04


To adjust the shocks loosen the locknuts and turn the adjuster plates OUT towards the locknut to increase the spring preload for a heavier load or IN away from the locknut to decrease the spring preload for a lighter load. You should MARK the adjuster plates before you begin so you can know when you have equally adjusted both shocks to the same position.

I HAVE A NEW 2011 HERITAGE SOFTTAIL AND WISH TO ADJUST THE REAR SHOCK BUT CANNOT LOCATE THE ADJUSTER


The adjusters are on the shocks that are underneath the bike. There are two adjustments. One is a nut on the shock stem that adjusts the height of the bike and the other is end plate of the shock with the holes in it. This adjusts the preload of the shocks. You need a special tool to adjust the preload.

Good Luck

How do i adjust the hear shocks for pillian weight?


This is directly from the 2008 VRSC Service Manual:

Make sure both shocks have the same preload.

The average weight solo rider might use the extended spring
preload position (adjustment setting 1 or 2).

1. Place the shock absorber adjustment tool around the lower
collar of the shock absorber.

2. Turn the collar clockwise (toward higher numbers) to
increase the preload or pressure.

Use the adjustment setting numbers as a reference for equal
adjustment of shock absorbers on both the right and left side
of the motorcycle. A heavy solo rider might require additional
preload or pressure (adjustment setting 3).

Adding a passenger may require maximum preload (adjustment
setting 5).

Turn the collar counterclockwise to decrease the preload or
pressure.

How can I stop a 2002 harley lowrider FXDL from bottoming out


On the front forks, you can change to a heavier fork oil. I run 30 wt. fork oil in my '94 FXDWG. On the rear, tighten the shocks up by adjusting the ring at the bottom of the spring. Turning the ring increases or decreases the preload on the spings depending on which way you turn the ring.

Good Luck

Procedure to adjust rear suspension suzuki c90 boulevard2006


Remove the right side cover and remove the the liner for the tool kit. This will expose the shock, Use the tool provided in the tool kit to adjust the nut up or down below the spring. Up for more preload, down for less. Its esier if you use a pipe on the end of the tool for leverage as there's not much room to work with.
