There is susposed to be two adjustments for the rear suspension... I found the first one, the large knob on the under the right side cover (36 clicks). But what about the other??? Any help finding it???

It's a little hard to get at but it's at the base of the shock. You need a short flat head screwdriver to adjust it.

I found that a dime works great to get in there and adjust the bottom screw. I have big hands and could not get in there with a stubby screwdriver.

having ridden dirt bikes(yes hondas) for years adjusting suspension is a way of life, streetbikes i dont have dialed in yet. yesterday i did a little fine tuning on my Fury rear shock ,but with the bridge "bump" on the interstate so far away i couldnt devote much time to it. like most on here i softened the top knob trying for a better ride ,seemed to me that on the big bumps it was worse- so i went harder on the top knob then softened the rebound on the bottom. its riding better but it still could use some improvement. it would be breeze to adjust if i could find a nice downhill tabletop to jump

Can someone explain in detail the ride characteristics of different combinations of the Fury's rear suspension control settings. :confused:

in a nutshell.... if u soften the shock all the way it has less resistance and goes thru its stroke faster(hence if your riding 2up or heavier than standard rider ,usually somewhere around 170lbs-yes that is a guess-youll want it set to harder . there is a rebound on the bottom which controls how fast it rebounds or returns,my thinking is if u soften the top too much (compression) and hit a large bump the shock will compress and if the rebound is to hard it will rebound the shock fast for a kidney bouncing ride. if u can balance the two for your weight it would be at its best

I know its been a while, but sometimes thinking smaller isn't the best option. I found a long flat like 14" works very well.

ride safe
