I lowered my saddle bags awhile back now when I hit a big bump the mount hits the frame . Not a big deal just annoying . It's a 2009 1300 vstar I've never adjusted the shocks . If I bought a spanner wrench and tightened them up . Would it actually stiffin up enough to change the travel ?

I lowered my bike 2 1/2 inches and with the shock set in the 3rd position I would bottom out a lot, I tightened it up to the 7th position and it helped out ALOT since then I've gotten a progressive spring for the rear and it is 100 times better

Hope this helps, try tightening it up and it should help you out
