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 Remove the horn located on the lower left side. 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 through the opening behind where the horn was located on the left side of the bike – see figures 2 and 3. 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 at the rear facing the left side of the motorcycle and the pressure valve is 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 stock two drive-belt cover bolts – as shown in figure 4. n Using the supplied zip-ties, secure the hydraulic line away from any moving parts or heat sources. Reinstall horn. To adjust the ride height, simply turn the adjuster knob clockwise (looking at it from the back of the bike) to increase the height and counterclockwise to reduce it.
