Suspension adjust

Did some reading on my 2012 KLR & found out the suspension is adjusted from the factory for an "average build" person of 150lbs. Guess I'm over average since I'm pushing 260 lol. Went & adjusted the preload to 4 & set the dampening about 3/4 of a turn since I couldn't feel or see any markings for that, amazing what a difference it makes having it set for a little more weight.

Cough up for some new springs and a re-valve and you will be truly astounded!

It's on the "to get list" but have a few things in front of that like a decent riding jacket & some crash bars.
