Do I really need to get a special tool to adjust the spring rate on my read n250r? I feel it's a tad soft.
To be honest, the tool sucks, but a good one to have. It works, but it can be a PITA to use. The best thing to do is take the chain guard off to use it. Once you set the shock to where you want it, you should be done. Any setting higher than 3 gets pretty stiff for a light rider (under 150 lbs), if the weight is over 200 lbs. setting 4 or 5 is good. Max setting barely moves at all.Can I have yours ? where do I get one?
3 or 4, depending on the road conditions and your riding style. If the roads are bumpy then use 3, if you ride smooth back roads and twisties, 4 helps with stability. Riding 2 up, use the max setting.I'm 171 and still losing ... I'm in the process of getting a flat pack ... So would setting 4 be better?
