Re: rear shock preload adjuster oil top up.
I did this earlier in the summer, but still only get resistance about 1/2 way down.
The shocks are coming off this weekend, so I will look at it again.
I don't want to hijack the thread, but, now that I have everything off, I wanted to look at how much the adjuster actually compressed the spring.I backed the adjuster all the way off and the spring plate (?) went all of the way home. At full adjustment there was about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch compression of the spring. (With the rear wheel off of the ground).
Is this what one would expect to see or should it move more?
Any ever looked at this before?
