Re: How to Adjust Your Shocks (long article)

Some shock tuners recommend 50% on race sag settings.

I had mine at 30%, it was way off.

When your adjusting the prelaod on the rear does the shock need to be un bolted from the top?? Is there a different tool to use other than the one that came w/ the bike? I can get that stupid wrench on there but I cant turn it dues to it's location.
