Owners manual

Bossman,

Adjusting the rear preload is covered in the owners manual. Here is a link to one source you can read on line. If it does not work go to starmotorcycles.com, click on parts and service, and select your bike. I believe you can print the page. Adjusting the shock is page 3-14.

you can also find the service manual or owners manual on Paul Milner's site.
