How to adjust the swing arm

Hi Anonymous, adjusting the shocks does not alter the height of the back end, just stiffens or soften the ride, for lowering the ride height the usual options are:
1. Thinner less paded seat.
2. Rear shock lowering kit.
3. Shorter shocks.
4. Shorter air shocks.
5. Front fork lowering kit.
6. Low profile tires.
Good luck.

My 93 goldwing has no air shock valve for adjusting air pressure.would my bike have oil dampened front shocks a nd how do i service them if they are oil dampened.a freind told me they could be oil...

Actually all shocks are oil dampened - the air pressure just increases the dampening effect of the oil. In all Goldwings the front shocks air pressure is adjustable and supposed to be 6 psi.
If you no longer have the air ports on the shocks then something is very wrong with this bike - the front fork has been modified, the shocks have been replaced with non genuine parts. Have the bike inspected by a Honda certified repair shop immediately.

Can am spyder can rear shock be adjusted ?

Yes, there is a spanner tool in your BRP tool bag (located in the Front Trunk - or Frunk). You need to lift the rear of the Spyder so the rear wheel is off the ground which takes the load off the rear shock spring. The rear shock is located in front of the rear wheel. Simply use the spanner to turn the adjustment ring. Compressing the spring will make it stiffer, turning the adjustment ring so the spring is longer will make it less stiff.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

adjusting your shock depends on where you intend to ride the bike. You are smaller so I would recommend setting you shock on the weaker side of medium on a mono shock for trail riding with jumps and woops. You'll need some rebound even as light as you are. If your front had adjustable tube pressure make sure it is the same unless in sand and stiffen it up some then.

Rear shock adjustment how do I do it and is there an adjustment for the front forks

Most rear shocks are adjustable by turning the bottom parts of the spring perch the spring is more stiff. The front forks are not adjustable.

Broken shock and drum/seal leak

Power off the wall mains. Open up the machine panel to look interiors. See if any springs or shocks (known as dampers) have broken or come off. The dampers should not slide in & out freely, if they're defective, replace. Tighten all loose wires, which may have come loose, future probs, so you dont have to open up again.

Next level your machine, front legs way up, means your machine is tilting towards you. Then adjust accordingly so that u cannot shake the machine with both your hands. Lock the nuts, only the fronts legs are adjustable, for most machines. (will get back to u)

There is too much involved to include everything, but I can describe to you what everything does.

You have compression dampening which slows the rate at which the shock or forks can compress. Then you have rebound dampening which slows the rate at which the shock or forks can extend.

The compression adjuster on the rear shock is toward the top, sticking out sideways where the resivoir mounts to the side of the shock. The rebound adjuster can be seen below the swing arm on the side of the shock.

The compression adjusters on the front forks can be seen from the top. (its the one in the center, the other is an air bleed) The rebound adjuster is in the center of the lower fork leg, and can be seen from below the fork.

The settings are measured in the number of "clicks" from seated. More clicks from seated will be softer, and less clicks from seated will be stiffer. The best thing to do is to see where you are now and adjusting from there. I like to write them down as I go. Turn the adjuster clockwise untill it stops and take note of the number of clicks. DO NOT FORCE IT! You should also check your service manual and take note of the standard setting, and also take note of the maximum number of clicks you can go from seated. You dont want to screw the adjusters out farther than the max, shock damage can result.

You might try changing to the standard settings and try adjusting from there. If the bike doesnt ride at least moderately decent at the standard settings, your shock and/or forks may need a rebuild.

Generally speaking more compression dampening in the rear will result in less bottoming but a harsher ride. Less would result in the oppisite.

More rebound dampening in the rear will result in too slow of extension and packing up which will make the bike swap in the whoops, but it will not tend to buck you or throw you into a nose dive over a jump. Less would result in the oppisite.

In the front, more compression dampening will be about the same situation as described above with the shock.

More rebound dampening in the front forks can tend to take pressure off of the front wheel in corners causing washout, but too little can make the bike want to loop out over jumps.
