Preload Adjuster Problem
I have a '08 with only 3,500 miles on it and I am the second owner. I also have a '05 KLR and know how the preload adjuster works....problem is, when I attempted to adjust the '08 preload, the adjuster bolt just never seems to "lock" into the correct position (trying for setting #5) and continues to just spin with minor clicking sound. It appears, the bolt has backed out of whatever internal connection sets the preload. I rode the bike and it seems a little soft but, not bad. Another problem is I am leaving next Wednesday night for a trip out west (trailering bike so it will not be loaded down except for my big @$$) and would really like to get this fixed prior to leaving....unless a new shock has to be installed (which would not be a bad thing if I wasn't under a time constraint!). Tell me folks, am I screwed or can it be repaired in a pinch? Thanks to all for any input!
