Hey All,
As suspension isnt a specialty of mine I thought i'd ask the question...

How do I know where to adjust them to?? Im assuming the ridges on the bones are used as an indication and....

How many adjust their shock??

I noticed the numbers on the collar.
Id like to drop 2" and possibly adjust the shock so I thought id put out feelers on others' setups

Cheers

Can't help much on the bones either, but if you adjust them to be the same length as you stock bones that will give you a starting point. From there, every 1/4" you make them longer drops the bike about 1". So if you adjust them to be 1/2" longer than the stock bones it should lower it 2".

And It really works that way, longer means lower.

On the shock itself, stock is set on 4 and lower numbers make it softer while higher numbers make it stiffer. I run mine on 2 since I mostly ride one up.

About 5 notches from the top gives you 1.5 to 2 inches. Perfect for single or 2 up riding. Just remember to adjust your suspension a little higher when you are 2 up.

Have fun!
