Just wondering if anyone has adjusted the rear shock on the 950. My 950 (not tourer model) was set on the fourth notch. I am going on a trip to Gettysburg this summer on the Lincoln Highway (about 450 miles one way). I got a luggage rack put on and a 19.5x19.5x11.5 luggage piece. So, a good size luggage. My wife weights about 135 (make sure she doesn't see that number). I adjusted the shock to 6th notch to compensate for the additional weight. Was wandering if I should go another notch. Anyone got ideas.
You are actually adjusting the rear springs. If you look at the shock you will see. Assuming you have an older model V star. Some of the newer bikes like the 950 & Liner have a single spring under the swing arm and you adjust it there. The wrench probably came with the bike.
