SHOCK REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION– The shocks are fitted with special length spacers to maintain correct alignment between the frame and the swingarm. If the shocks are removed for service or repair, they must be installed in the correct position. Refer to the diagram on the next page for spacer positioning and layout. NOTE: Misalignment between the mounts on the frame and the mounts on the swingarm can cause binding between the shock shaft and shaft bushing. Misalignment of more than 1/4 inch can cause the shocks to bind up and not function properly. If this binding occurs, the shocks will feel overly stiff and harsh. Follow the procedures below to check for misalignment when installing the shocks. NOTE: The shock bushings are designed to have a certain side-to-side “float” to keep them from binding. As a result, do not grind or file the inner or outer edges of the bushings to make them narrower. The amount of “float” in the bushing set is necessary to ensure smooth operation of the damper assembly. If the shock eyes are tightened metal-to-metal (the outer faces of the eyes to the flanges or washers), this will lead to a harsh, stiff or choppy ride and premature seal leakage or damage to the shafts. MULTI-RATE SPRINGS Depending on each application, single or dual-rate springs are available. Dual-rate springs are just that– a spring set with two separate rates. This is done with a short spring stacked on a longer spring. As both springs compress they produce a soft, or initial, rate. The spring set will maintain this initial rate until the short spring stops compressing. At that point, the spring rate “crosses over” to the stiffer, or final, rate. This multi-rate system allows a soft initial rate for comfort on small bumps, but has the capability of soaking up the big pot-holes and other road hazards. PRELOAD ADJUSTMENT— On Works shocks, threaded preload is standard. (See Fig. 2.) This allows the adjustment of the ride height of the motorcycle. The preload is changed by turning a threaded nut down towards the spring (higher ride height) or up away from the spring (lower ride height). The nut is a right-hand thread. It is used primarily to set the ride height for solo riding, but can also be used when

Removal of Bike parts: Remove the following parts following the factory manual: s ide covers, p assenger foot rests, e xhaust covers, seat, t our pack, s addlebags, b attery and b ox, r ear tire, b rake line ( at rubber hose near swing arm pivot ), s hocks ( air compressor line is disconnected at shock, and stays with compressor) , S wingarm and d riveshaft (reverse box may stay connected, just pull out to side ), m ufflers, and h elmet locks. Preparation: Cut-off the saddlebag support tubes where the vertical tube meets the angled tube in the front and back. All you want left is the tour pack support. Loosen tour pack support at bottom bolts, remove top bolts, and then lift up a little. This allows the body to go under the support. If you have the fuel tank: Secure the two black control boxes, facing each other, one on top of the other. Secure to frame using the green ground wire hole at center of frame. Use the 2 ¼” spacer tube and long screw provided to hold them together. If no fuel tank: leave rear half of fender in place Install air-compressor relocation bracket (1 ½” x 4″ w/ 3 holes) and remount compressor. After mounting, secure the compressor to the bracket with a wire tie Install suspension: See brake amendment for master cylinder prep Install machined studs in the swing arm pivot hole with some blue Locktite on them. This provides a 5/8″ stud on the side of the frame for the suspension side plates. Screw in until flush with frame. Remove the 6mm bolts from the exhaust heat shield on the outside of the frame rail. Install the shock replacement bars on the top shock stud and re-install bolts, leave bars hanging loose for now. Put the suspension on a floor jack and roll up to the bike. (note: once forward all the way, jack up to meet the studs.) Spread the chassis plates over the studs and start the nuts. Be careful not to damage the threads on the machined studs. Jack up the rear to align the shock replacement bars, slip in the bolts. Install 8mm x 40mm bolts and ¾” spacers to crash bar tabs on frame with spacer. Tighten the front stud nuts, crash bar tab bolts, and shock replacement bars

Follow instructions in an authorized shop manual or take the motorcycle toacompetent dealer. The motorcycle must be on thecenterstand (if equipped) or securely blocked to prevent it from tipping over when the shocks are removed. Failure to do so can cause serious damage and/or injury. The use of any lowering blocks is not recommended and will void the warranty. Make sure that proper bushings/sleeves are installed in the shocks. Improper bushings/sleeves can cause unsatisfactory and/or unsafe operation (seethe instructions packaged with the mounting hardware). 1. Place a quality jack or sufficient blocks under the motorcycle to securely lift the rear wheel slightly off the ground. 2. Using the correct shop manual, remove the old shocks and note location of the mounting hardware. If additional accessories are installed on your motorcycle, please refer to their mounting instruc- tionsforremoval to gain access to your shocks. 3. Before installing your new Progressive shocks you need to check the tire to fender clearance, (see Ain figure1) making sure that the tire does not come in contact with the fender. If the rear fender or tire has been changed to anything other than stock, a travel limiter maybe required. On some models with side bags or luggage, removal of the lower cover maybe required to eliminate any interference. Install shock assemblies onto the motorcycle (shaft end must be down!) and tighten bolts/nuts to proper torque. Check the clearances of the shock to frame (B) and shock to chain, chain guide, disc caliper and linkage (C) in figure 1. The lower cover can be removed for clearance if necessary. 4. Reinstall any accesso- riesremovedin accord with their mounting instructions. Make sure accessories do not in- terferewith shocks throughout full travel. If any accessories bolt to shock mounting points, a careful inspection must be made to insure that they do not bind the shocks in anyway (see figure 2)

Located in the Haute Savoie region of Eastern France, Rotronics has been designing and manufacturing engine and chassis dynamometers since 1990. Data acquisition technology, initially developed for high level competition, has been continually evolving with respect to the needs both of the motorcycle rider and the specialist. Today, a motorcycle dynamometer is increasingly part of a professional establishment. It is a very effective diagnostic tool for the service engineer, considerably reducing the need for road testing and proven to be very commercially effecive, notably in the context of second hand vehicles. Reduced risk, less lost time, a credible and efficient workshop, an increased range of services and improved client confidence : a dynamometer stimulates your business. MOTOSCAN II is comprised of totally modular elements. This exclusive design allows great flexibility in the installation and extension of the test facility. Available as a free-standing or built-in version, with an automatic (optional) or manual front wheel support, with or without supplementary engine load, the chosen configuration can always be extended. The test bed can be transformed at will, according to the users budget or needs. Hence it is very simple to upgrade the «Lite» version to the automatic one; more frequently a permanently built- in model is converted to one that is free-standing when demanded by reoganisation of business premises or workshop (relocation, restructuring, change of activity…). MOTOSCAN II is compatible with all types of motorcycle : tourers, motocross, trials, enduro, sports… Moreover, the test procedures specific to mopeds and to scooters allow methodical adjustment of the automatic transmission thanks to characteristic operating curves.

Installation: 1. Remove the fork springs according to the OEM Owner’s Manual. 2. Check/adjust fork oil level and weight according to OEM Specifications. Caution: Most inverted forks will not require the use of any shim washers or spacers. In cases where use is necessary with the twin chamber style fork, the shims must be placed at the bottom of the spring. Most conventional forks (non-inverted) will use shim washers or spacers at the top of the fork spring. 3. Install Factory Connection fork springs and refer to OEM Owner’s Manual for proper assembly procedures. 4. Be sure to double check all fasteners. Note: Most modern day forks require special tools for disassembly and assembly of the components. Examples : Showa 47/49mm Twin Chamber, KYB 48mm Twin Chamber, WP 07 SX Models/SXS Components. Installing fork springs is an intricate process that should be performed with extreme care by a qualified suspension technician. Failure to install the springs correctly could cause damage to one or more components of the fork. This damage, although not readily apparent, could lead to unexpected failure or rider injury. Factory Connection manufactures models specific fork springs. Installation of a Factory Connection spring not designed for your motorcycle may result in unexpected failure and rider injury. Please consult your Factory Connection spring dealer or call Factory Connection directly if you are unsure about a spring/or springs. 1. Factory Connection’s Limited Lifetime Warranty Factory Connection warrants, to the original retail purchaser (“consumer”) who retains ownership of the vehicle on which the suspension spring(s) (“products(s)”) was originally installed, all suspension springs for life against factory defects in material and workmanship (other than defects in finish) when used under normal use and operating conditions. 2.
