Rear suspension adjustment

Post by dand »



Just bought a 2013 Audio Comfort. The owners manual says you have to put it on center stand to adjust rear suspension. Can it be adjusted without doing this? It will change to the 2 presets while it is on the side stand. Can it be changed to the presets while riding?

I have done it without putting it up on the center stand, but it is recommended to use the Center Stand to relieve the amount of pressure required to lift it. Easier on the motor drive.

the most important part, is that when it is on the ground, you should feel the seat start to rise at #1 on the counter display. If it don't it has air in the hydraulics.
