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.

The C50 can be lowered, but not by adjusting the shock.
Adjusting the shock only stiffens or softens the ride.

To lower the Suzuki Vl800 (C50), you will need to purchase a lowering kit, which consists of a new set of "lowering bones" (so named because they are shaped like dog bones).

You will need to remove the stock bones from the shock, and replace them with the new bone from the kit. You can buy kits on eBay that will lower your bike 1 to 3 inches.

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.

I have a 2006 kawasaki ninja 650r and i am trying to adjust the riding height, is it possible and how would i do it


no the bike is not fitted with a ride height adjuster you can only stiffen or soften the rear shock absorber preload on the spring or drop the fork through the yokes.you can on the other hand buy either shorter or longer dog bone links for the rear suspension linkage to lower or lift the rear suspension

Adjusting shocks


To remove lift rear tire slightly off the ground then remove the shock attaching bolt and washer with a special Snap-On adapter PN SRES24 and then remove the flange locknut and washer with grommet at the front of the shock. To reinstall put the washer and grommet inside the frame and put the bushing over the stud end of the shock and put the stud end through the keyed frame tube and loosely install the flange locknut. THEN coat the shoulder of the shock bolt (1) with ANTI-SEIZE compound and the bolt threads with blue loctite and insert the bolt and washer through the shock end and pivot the shock to align the bolt and the hole in the rear fork. Then tighten the shock bolt with the Snap-on adapter and since the adapter is not going to be at 90 degrees to the torque wrench it will lengthen the torque wrench and therefore the torque value must be computed with a torque computer such as the Snap-On PN SS-306G.Tighten the bolt and washer at the rear to 115-130 ft-lbs (155.9-176.2 Nm) and tighten the flange locknutto 32-39 ft-lbs (43.4-52.9 Nm). Then adjust the shocks equally with a special shock adjustment spanner.



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.
