Not a ride report, but...
« on: August 17, 2014, 05:06:36 PM »
Took it out for a half hour today, had some fun. Definetly need a different spring. The P.O. Put a beefy spring in there, and it doesn't compress when I sit on it, raising the ride height much higher than stock.

In it's natural habitat:

Nice looking bike.............. not as faded as mine (pink). humph1

Is the rear spring adjustable? It might be set high for a heaver person or person and luggage.  Does the shock have a pre-load setting?  :think2:

I hope that you get things sorted out so you can enjoy late summer and fall riding. :ricky:  :beer:

Ride safe. Change the gas often.  jerry

I do need to fool with the settings, but it's the spring that's too stiff. Adjusting it is only gonna give me a little bit of relief.
