I've adjusted mine down 2 notches from stock and it about as soft as I can go with 2 riders. Once i turn this into a solo rider, I'll probably be adjusting it all the way down. I've hit a few bumps already that made my balls bounce off the seat!:eek: Ouch!

Still too stiff

Adjusted mine all the way down; still a little stiff but it's better. I believe there's also strut adjustments and another screw on the bottom of the shock you can turn to soften further, but I've noticed mine already has a tendency to wanna bottom on the lip of the steep little cement ramp going into my garage, so I'm not trying to soften it further. If and when L&M comes out with the air shock they've been talking about, I'll probably be a customer ...

Softer is the way to go. Tried harder setting and it made you feel every bump, weight 220.

not sure without checking owners manual, top knob is probably compression and bottom adjustment would be rebound. try slowing rebound down -that should help. ill get to mine as soon as i get a chance

Has anyone adjusted the shock , Mayby get little softer ride .
Nobody seems to listen you said Shock and you are correct. Rightside cover off difficult to see but there is a black slotted adjusting screw at the bottom of the shock. (The shock is inside the heavy coil spring) with arrows s - h go towards CCW. I'm still not sure how many times you can turn it but I got pissed that nobody answered your Question. The name shock means a shocking affect. shocks absorb the shock. You can google the full answer to how many turns just like I will.

Dude, you just resurrected a thread FROM 2009!! On top of that you are giving incorrect information on your first post.

The slotted screw at the bottom of the shock (the part attached to the swingarm) has NOTHING to do with how soft the shock is going to feel. That small screw adjusts your rebound. How the fluid internally flows through tiny ports. Adjust the screw clockwise, your rebound is slower and less oil flows through those ports. CCW, and your rebound reacts faster. Flow ports are opened. It's all a part of how the shock is valved.

The ONLY thing that is going to increase the "stiffness" of the shock is the large, black compression knob on the right side of the bike. It increases or decreases the spring preload, which in turn changes the amount of sag the bike has. Since there are no options to change to different weight springs, this is a very limited adjustment, so if you are an outlier when it comes to weight, there may not be enough or be too little compression for you.
