For those that are NOT aware..

This is the M109R Spanner Wrench used to adjust the mono coilover shock suspension in the rear.

Attached Image:


This tool was NOT included in the M109R tool kit. The tool IS referenced in the initial Owners manuals but was later removed because Suzuki did not intend to include it with the purchase of the bike. They said it was a typo in the Owner manual that indicated that it was included in the tool kit. Only the lucky ones that called and complained early enough got the spanner wrench for FREE. All others were told to purchase it seperately.

I have no clue how much one of these costs from Suzuki. But this tool is nothing more than a stamped out piece of 3/16ths metal.

Note: Some posts here indicate that the wrench costs about $10.. I think a nice custom wrench from DLP would be much nicer.. (hint hint)...

Picked mine up yesterday from the dealer. What a piece of crap. paid $6.50 less my 10% discount. I looked at it, laughed and then threw it in my tool box when I got home. Talk about Mickey Mouse tools.

The main reason most people are having problems trying to adjust the suspension is that they are trying to do it with all the weight of the bike still on the shock!!!!
"You need to use a bike lift to take the weight off the shock" then it will be a lot easier!!!
Your Welcome Glad I could be of service :D :joke: Later Silentrider

As you can see from the picture. I had to write what it is on the tool..

I tossed it into the kitchen junk drawer and a month later, the wife asks "What the He11 is this?"

LOL

It does scratch the adjuster collar a bit, but I've used small Channel-lock pliers to adj up & down, no jack, not too much effort. (open pliers about 1.5'', 1 jaw in 1 slot,other in another). ;)

The wrench handle is short and that is what makes it difficult to adjust the shock. You can really improve the leverage of the wrench by making a handle extension from a piece of 1/2 diameter metal electrical pipe conduit. Just cut the pipe to length and flatten it! It will slip over the wrench handle and makes adjusting the shock a breeze :bigthumbsup: Both pieces easily fit the factory tool pouch :D
