After having the preload on number 35 clicks out of 35 the bike sits on it's arse so bad two up that I can't get the sidestand down,the spring is not fit for purpose but I am not buying a new shock on a brand new bike,so in the uk top suspension company KTECH do 4 different weight springs for a tenth of the price of a new shock,i will take the shock out and get them to fit the new spring and then I will have the bike it should be now,at this time there is no way I could put luggage and a pillion on together.

Hyperpro

I am installing a progressive rear spring from Hyperpro tomorrow as my bike sags too much with stock spring and luggage. Costs a lot less than a replacement shock. The shock shock is pretty good except for rebound. It’s completely rebuidable and fully adjustable. I will most likely rebuild it this winter to enhance rebound.
