Question On Rear Air Shock Pressures

Postby Possum51 » Thu Dec 20, 2012 4:36 pm



As some of you may remember I had back surgery in July of this year. I have recently been cleared to start riding again and the couple of times I've rode (short trips 80 miles or so) I've noticed that there is too much softness in the rear, to me it seems too bouncey. What would be a good medium pressure to try on my next trip?

:) Not dumb at all. I find that mine bottoms out and gives a good kidney jar if not firm enough. I just adjust mine to the top line of the rear shock indicator on the dash display while on the center stand and that usually is a happy medium for me.

Thanks for the input, my dash was butchered (working on that), so I guess I'll have to adjust the air manually with a pressure gauge to stiffen it up a bit. Its just too bunchy right now, feels like riding on a seadoo over a wavey lake.
