I went to adjust the rear shock and it did not budge! I did have sausage instead of Wheaties for breakfast. Should I have to spray it with WD-40? :edit: :swear: :realmad: :dontknow:

If you followed what the book said by doing it on the sidestand, as I am sure you must have, then it must just be stuck. I have never had this kind of horizontally situated rear shock before, by I did have a 1200 Bandit that had the same adjustment setup and it could be a bear to switch. Yeah maybe a LITTLE WD-40 might help, or an extension bar iof there is room. Good luck and watch the knuckles.

My shock is pretty hard to adjust, Position the wrench and hold the bike with your other hand and pull. I put-on a glove after my first try. JOHN

I can see the numbers engraved on the spinner, but there are two of those bumps 180 degrees apart that the manual states when it points to it that's what it is set to.
