Hi guys and girls

I'm wanting to adjust my rear coil over pre-load as I'm not the smallest bloke going around, I've added hard bags and I more often than not carry a pillion.

Question is, do I need a special tool for the job, is there any advice on adjusting the rear pre-load.

Thanks

I don't have any knowledge about that but someone makes an adjustable air ride suspension. You might want to look into that.

I think that comes standard on the Springfield and cheiftan.

I'm happy to adjust pre-load. Just wanting to know any tips to doing so.

Go to you tube and look up suspension setting. Or sag setting..there will be a litany of Vids on the subject.
Weather its a sport bike, or bagger, the Theory remains the same.

On the tool needed I'm not familiar enough with your bike to answer but if it's not air, it's usually a spanner wrench that (if relevant) should have come with your bike.

IIRC, it should be a 3" spanner. it's a very tight fit (poorly designed IMO). you will probably want two of them.
