Filed Under (Suzuki) by admin on 13-02-2011

Mount the shock as you would your stock shock per your authorized shop manual (with the rebound adjustment at the bottom) noting the following: n On the left side of the motorcycle, remove the secondary drive cover, rectifier cover, and rectifier. Also remove the Remote Adjustable Pre-Load adjuster knob by removing the screw located in the center of the knob, then pull it straight off. n As you mount the shock, feed the Remote Adjustable Pre-Load adjuster (knob removed) through opening between the frame and the rear of the motor – just behind & below where the shift-shaft comes out – on the left side of the bike (see figure 3 & 4) . Do not loosen or attempt to rotate the line between the shock and the adjuster. n Reinstall the adjuster knob, and torque the screw to 50 in/lbs (5.65 N-m). n Make sure the shock rebound adjustment is towards the rear and facing down and the pressure valve is towards the front facing up. n Tighten shock bolts to the proper torque specifications (refer to your manual). n Mount the adjuster to the supplied mounting bracket using the supplied M6-1.0X8mm SHCS fasteners and torque them to 80-90 in/lbs (9-10 N-m). Then mount the bracket to the bike using the two lower mounting bolt holes for the rectifier bracket as shown in figure 5 – one of which is the lower mounting bolt for the rectifier, which will be replaced with the supplied longer fastener. Reinstall the rectifier, sandwiching the adjuster bracket behind it (see figure 6) . n Using the supplied zip-ties, secure the hydraulic line away from any moving parts or heat sources. n Reinstall the secondary drive cover and rectifier cover (figure 7) , then proceed to adjust your ride height.
