Nope....can't adjust it. I replaced mine with a Scotts, but I hear you can replace the oil with a heavier oil which will make it more efficient.Most stock dampers (with exception of Honda's) are essentially crap. I don't understand why the bike manufacturers dont supply an "aftermarket" damper, like Ohlins or Scotts as original equipment. They could buy them cheap enough.

Yeah, I didn't see any place to adjust mine , I was just wondering if I was missing something . I will eventually get an aftermarket one.

Tires first. Lines next.

Nah, same time... I should have around $500 just for upgrades out of my Christmas Bonus. tires will run 1/2 of that, Lines are around $160 for the set, So that puts me just over $400.
