Re: Spanner Wrench INFO

Thanks for the model number. Dealer could not seem to figure it out. When I asked all they said was, " Oh, I have no idea which one it would be" DUH! Thank you, I am going to order one tomorrow.

Re: Spanner Wrench INFO

I don't like to make assumptions, but can I safely assume we are talking about the wrench used to adjust the rear suspension?

My dealer ordered me one,at No cost! Had it sent to my home address. If you haven't used one,it takes allot of pressure,to click the pre load. I made a "cheater out of some tubing,and it fits into the tool box with the rest of the tools. I'll post a pic of it when I get time. Real simple,and saves your hands! :bigthumbsup:

I had asked about that in another post, and one or two of the members here told me that it's easier to do if you have a jack and raise your bike. By doing that you take the load off the shock and it's easier to adjust....mind you I haven't done it yet but the guys who told me on here are the gurus...

Yes, it does take some pressure to move it. I did it a while back to the lowest number and like the soft ride. But why would you carry it around with your tool kit? It won't help you fix something that breaks when you're riding. Just takes up space.

Ron....I'll save you the trouble :D

The cheater is a piece of metal conduit flattened to fit over the end on the spanner wrench...



The cheater is approximately 4 3/4 inch long and provides the extra leverage to adjust the shock :bigthumbsup:

Just slip the cheater onto the spanner and your ready to go! The wrench and cheater easily fit into your tool kit.
