Steering damper ?

Hey guys,
New in LT business...
How do I adjust this thing in the front of my 07?
I'm a big&tall guy.
TIA

Hi Avi. We all started out new to this LT business, so welcome to the club. The gurus here are amazing. Unfortunately, I think I remember reading that the steering damper is neither adjustable nor rebuildable. Being a fairly tall guy myself, what is it that you would like to adjust with the front steering/suspension?

Thanks Bill,
I see, it just looked like something waiting to be adjusted
So I'll just leave it alone...And look for something else to play with...

There is a small adjustment you can make to the handlebar position, but I donít think itís worth the hassle. Iím tall also and think it just takes a little time to get accustom to the ergonomics of the bike. Do you have a back rest yet (highly recommended)? What about highway pegs? Thereís plenty to play with.
