Suspension on a 750, 2002 Nevada

Hi All,

I need a little help please. I have been trying to set up the suspension and the handbook says that the standard setting for the pre tension is 8mm. The trouble is that I do not know where to measure this 8mm from and to. Also any info on setting up the suspension in general would be very gratefully received.

Kind regards,

have you got the shock absorbers with two collars that lock against each other ?
the measurement is the amount of exposed thread below them
however if they have not been greased and adjusted for some time, your chances of moving them are about as likely as England winning the world cup
how old is the bike ?
if its more than ten years old they are likely to be a bit lazy, and the easiest route is a set of Hagons
these have three settings and come supplied with a chunky C spanner

Many thanks for your reply, it is a 2002 year, yes it comes with a c spanner but not 2 collars as far as I can tell, and the adjustment at the moment is around 3 - 4mm. So at some point it has been moved, think I will coat the threaded area with some WD40 and leave it overnight and then have a go.

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

Bestcellar.
