Suspension pre-load
Trying to dial in my suspension, but my pre-load screw won't budge....kinda hard to get too. Anybody know how hard I should have to crank on that thing to get it to budge?

Also, thinking about up grading my rear shock...looking at the Moab, anybody have any experience with this shock?

The Moab is a great shock! Miles ahead of the stock noodle.

Were you trying to adhjust the forks or shock? The fork do not have a opreload adjuster but MotoWizard does.
I have seen three (two riders) Moab shock fail and they stood behing the failures. There are other shocks available. Ricor is one of them.

I am looking for a rear shock. The forks are working so well it makes the stock shock standout negatively. Yesterday I rode PCH pretty hard and the Rear of the KLR could not keep up with the frontend.

rear shock
adjusting the rear, finally got the nut to spin. let me know what you end up buying with regards to a new rear shock...i will purchasing one soon. currently, my rear shock is the only thing that limits my riding, especially when 2up - which seems to be quite often as of late.
