2 guestions about installing wilbers in my LT
I've got both the front and rear shocks installed.
With my bike still on the center stand I can't get the torque past 20nM at the top of the front shock, it just spins.
The second question is where to install the extra reservoir for the rear shock? Every place I've tried isn't easy to clamp to the frame?
Ted suggested that the LTs needed this extra part.
After a lot of struggling, I finally figured out how to install the adjustment tube. When I tried the most obvious set up, it was way to close to the negative batt terminal. After trying every iteration I could think of it occurred to me that I had to remove the after market "U" shaped bracket-handle I installed--that did the trick.
Did I mention that I hate those infuriating clamped on hose clamps on the fuel line?!!!!
