thank you !! this is exactly what i was looking for..Rear Shock
There are five Compression settings. The adjustment bolt can be found on the leftside top of the shock. You need a 3/8" ratchet, 12mm socket, 6" extention. Always rotate the bolt clockwise. The setting can vary per preference, style and load.
There are four Rebound settings. The adjustments can be found on the rightside bottom of the shock covered by a small piece of plastic. The usual settings are either #2 or #3.
Do yourself a favor and purchase MotoWizard Preload Adjusters. The drain the fork oil and refill with ATF to a level of 170cm from the top of the fork tube. The preload adjusters make a big difference when setting up your KLR. You can adjust them by stopping, loosen(uncompress) or tighten(compress) the adjuster til you find what is good for you. You can make these simple adjustments before and after going off-road.
Do a search on the forums and you will find many opinions and they are all correct, for the author. Read and experiment is my suggestion.
Hope this helps.
Another thing is to have little or no weight on the KLR when adjusting the rear shock.thanks, I got it. I just figured why not, it's a klr. Learn. Gave it a bit and wah-lah, it moved. Twisted it a bit. All good, thanks for the response. Can't believe how easy this thing is to work on.
