2001 Yamaha XJ 900 S Diversion how to adjust rear shock

Hi, I'm new to bike mechanics so please go easy on me! My 2001 Yamaha XJ900S Diversion has an adjustable rear mono-shock absorber. I thinks that it's numbered from one to six. There's a 'C' spanner as part of the tool kit which seems to fit into the top of the shock absorber but I can't get the adjuster to turn. I've smothered it with WD40 but I'm thinking that I'm maybe doing something wrong. The bike's been bottoming out when I go over speed bumps, and over smaller bumps when I have a pillion. I've been advised to adjust the setting. How do I do it? Thanks, Norm.

SOURCE: Adjusting suspension

hi there,,if u can see a air valve on top of the forks, then u can use a bicycle or foot pump to squeeze a bit more air to the fork,, or if there is an adjuster on the fork,ie, a plastic lookin cap with 1 2 3 4 and a arrow on it u can turn that to a comfortable position,, if there is nothing u can see, then u either have not enuff fork oil in each fork leg,,or if there is enuff,, u will need to change the grade of fork oil and replace wots in it,, so id say a more harder grade of oil,, usually there isnt enuff oil in the forks to make it dive into the front wheel,, try topping the oil up,,with about,4or 5 egg cup fulls of oil in each leg,,if nothing has made any difference,, put in another 4 or 5 ,,,any probs on how u put oil in2 the legs ,please do come back in ,and il tell u how 2,, im assuming u do no,, ok ,,cheers

SOURCE: Fuel tank parts

Don't get a new one!!! If you're anyway handy, drain the tank, slip it off the bike & turn it upside down. Scribe a mark on the body of the unit to the tank to ensure you get it lined up again rebuilding. Unscrew the 4 retaining screws holding the sender unit in place. The rubber seal can be used again but examine it first. Carefully remove the sender unit, it's crooked in parts so you need to twist it at strange angles to get it out. Once it's out you will see the float/metal rod attached to a black bakealite holder. There is a tiny star shaped washer holding it in place, very easy to lose. Prise off the washer. Keep it safe. Upon inspection of the bakealite holder(potentiometer) you will see the metal rod has elongated the hole and thus sends a wrong signal to the fuel gauge on the dash. To counter this, get yourself some plumbers tape, the very thin stuff, and wrap it round the metal bar where it goes through the potentiometer, the part that is most worn. The trick is to get the metal rod to sit evenly & square to send the correct signal to the gauge. You may have to add or deduct some tape but make sure the float/rod moves freely before you rebuild it. This sounds gimmicky but in essence it's really handy and you save £50 on a new sender unit. Before you refit the little washer, gently squeeze it between a flat pair of pliers to tighten the little gripper teeth, then refit it. Press it home with pointy nose pliers. To test it you can attach it to the multiplug on the bike and move it manually with your hand whilst watching the dash. You should have a working fuel gauge. Mines been repaired like this for 4.5 years and it's as accurate as it was before it went wonky. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: need to adjust shock absorber on 1996 yamaha royal star

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

SOURCE: Yamaha V-Star rear spring preload wont adjust

Right you are, jack the rear tire off the ground being careful not to pickup the swingarm at the same time...Using either a spanner wrench or VERY large pair of channel locks you should be able to turn it.
Good Luck

Free manual download for diversion jx900s


Hi, Cathryn the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.
