Hi there,
Check the top of one of the forks, there may be a knob type dial that you can turn clock-wise or anti-clock-wise, turning it one way will give you a stiffer ride, turning it the other will give you a softer ride. Some forks don't have this pre-load adjustment however.
Cheers.

Bike squeeks from front suspension


put a couple drops of oil on the stanchion tubes of the shock forks where they seals connect with the sliders and see if that helps. It is possible that inside the fork it has dried out and the spring needs some grease where it seats inside of the fork.

How can adjust front shock f650gs 2007


It depends on what you want to adjust. There is no screw type adjustment on the shock itself.

If you are after a different feel, this can only be done by replacing the fork oil with a different grade or amount.

Typically the shocks will have a 10W oil and a 120mm air gap. Using a thicker oil will make then slower, thinner oil makes them faster.

Smaller air gap makes them harder, larger air gap softer.

Loose crank


It is adjustable. But I would suggest to take it apart and lube the bearing assm.'s then set the adjustment. When setting the adjustment gently tighten the nut spin the sprocket assm. 5 or so turns to allow grease to spread evenly then back off the nut slightly and tighten nut enough to set a zero spec. in other words no side to side play and yet not tight (to tight and you can harm the bearings)

Suspension adjustment for a 2007 Shogun Hydra


Have a look at this site:http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/index.php/t-15120.html and this site might help http://www.bikewebsite.com/suspension.htm You will have to either search for the manufacturers site and look for the adjustment info there( you should be able to download the manual for the forks ) or mention the specifics here so we can find them. According to my info your bike should have a Suntour SF-M3010db fork on it.

Crf 450 front preload adjustment


Hi ...... Any preload and/or damping will be adjustable from the top of the forks (even upside down forks). Anti-clockwise to reduce, clockwise to increase. You may find that a previous owner has increased the 'weight' of fork oil as a cheap/easy alternative to adjustment or aftermarket linear or progressive springs.

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.
