Hi Guys,

I was just wondering what adjustment you guys make to the preload on the rear shock when caryying luggage? I'm thinking more specifically about the guys who use topboxes on their XTs?

Any feedback much appreciated!

Cheers

Hello mool, when I went to France with my tail pack and top box (which I might add were full to the brim) not with make up either before any of you say anything. I never changed my suspension at all. Remember if you have a pillion you very rarely change the suspension (well I dont) so I felt there was no need for the luggage......

Oh was this wrong? The bike never struggled or wained at any point and it was a very comfortable ride.....

Thanks Lady P Very Happy Very Happy Thats the answer i was looking for!! The XT is already fully loaded in full touring gear ready for the Lake District and changing the preload setting now would be a bit of a pain to say the least!

Give us a wave if any of you guys see me battling my way north tonight Very Happy Cool

Cheers
