[/URL][/IMG] Just got my 2008 KLR and 2009 Velorex put together and have ridden about 200 miles. In browsing this forum I see that one of the recommended suspension changes is to stiffen up the rear suspension (thank you RedMenace and others). It looks like I need to change to a stiffer spring and add raising links. I tried to move it to the stiffest level 5 on the spring preload and may have broken it because it is now set on the softest setting of 1 and wont go any stiffer. So my questions are: Do I need a new shock to make the spring preload adjustment work again? Hopefully not because they are pricey ($700 range). Can I avoid getting a new shock by just going with a stiffer spring and the raising links? What spring should I get - I weigh 150 lbs and the Velorex (no load) is 150 lbs? Has anybody used the DMC stiffer spring ($100)? Looks like Eagle Mike has raising links. Im thinking I should get the taller raising links. Any comments or recommendations will be much appreciated.
