Rear Preloader spring adjuster
« on: March 05, 2016, 11:16:52 PM »
I have now made some more Rear Preloader Spring Adjusters which will fit all the 800's apart from the new Xc's
if you want to order one message me they are now 23 sorry for price rise had to cnc machine them at another engineering company where I worked a few years ago postage for Uk 4.50 or International 10.50  :490:

It is an extension of the preload adjuster on the rear shock. Making it easier to adjust (for passenger or loads) without the need for any tools. 


Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I have bought a second hand one off thus forum and confirm the standard of engineering is spot on  :152:
I won't keep it attached to shock though as you can't see the marks ,but it great for adjusting shock

Hi Dave, if you look you can see I simply filled the slight recessed circle on the knob with white paint. Then fitted the adjuster with the grub screws Loctited as per the instructions.
I will say though that to date after fitting from the bike being new and checking setting for solo rider I haven't actually as yet found a need to adjust the rear preload but hopefully SHMBO is going to give the bike a try with a view to touring when the weather gets better (until the first time she gets wet probably  :005:  :008: ) then it wil be convenient.  :028:

It pays to regularly wind the adjuster in and out to keep it free. the adjuster is mechanical and they are prone to seizure. I also take mine off every year or so and squirt chain lube into the adjuster.

Hi, just saw this post and want to say that this was the best accessory investment i made for my XC. (I now have the XCX)
A must-have for anyone switching from solo to passenger or tarmac to dirt. 
Cheers
