ok so say I eigh 270 and carry passengers often.... that's a crazy load on the shocks. What kind of shock spring should i be looking at?
i would recommend increasing your spring preload for carrying passenger.
also, increase the front preload as well. I'm not sure if here is a height adjustment on those bikes. Try that first before committing to a stiffer spring.
let me know if you need more info on how to adjust preload.
I have the rear adjusted all the way down. My fork seals are leaking a bit so i'm taking them to get fixed tonight - i'll ask to get that preload adjusted too. WOuld front fork ajustment really have that much affect?
The rear isn't bottoming out necesarilly - the orginal SV shock was bottoming out after a while and my license plate kept getting caught in the rear wheel. That doesn't happen with teh gsxr shock, but it's still pretty low with a passenger. I'm planning some road trips on it soon, so i just wanted to get it up a bit higher. I like the stiffer feel anyway....
