    My '07 1200 gs rear preload only screws 1/2 way down, all else seems ok. Can the preload adjuster be serviced? The BMW shop says to make an appointment and then they will tell me ( a 2 hr. ride and about $ 150. ) Thanks for any help.

    Try pouring a hot cup of Starbucks dark roast to heat up the mechanism and free it
