05 Rear Spring Adjustments
Posted March 29, 2006 - 06:05 AM
Is there another way to get at that lock nut? Do I have to remove the airbox or subframe to do this? What have you guys done?

I read on TT that it was easier to remove the bottom subframe bolt and then pivot the subframe up towards the handlebars.

Is it easier to just drop the linkage and pull the shock? I've never had this issue on a bike before. On my old KLX300, you just take a plastic panel off and you have full access to the shock. This beastly WR takes a little more patience....I still love it, though

Not to be a smart ass but remember righty tighty, lefty loosey. I have caught myself turning the nut the wrong way before because of the angle and area you have to adjust the spring. Also maybe try to tighten the top nut with a few taps to see if it will loosen it if you have any corrosion building up on the threads. Good luck.
yeah, i already caught myself going the wrong way once. i think everyone does it. i think i'll try the pb blaster stuff.
