What’s your current pre-load set at? I’m the same weight as you, and the stock rear shock spring was barely acceptable @ pre-load setting 5.How much do you weight? I'm about 210 and would like to lower the bike an inch but the problem is I don't want to ruin that perfectly balanced stock budget suspension ride it has. I love the way it rides stock.
Sticking a lowering link will inadvertently make the rear shock feel even softer…..
