Me too. I had the same issue.
Same! I bought a new one though as I bent the crap out of it.
Yep. I used a long punch and a small dead blow hammer.
It helps to clean the threads on the shock body, and to lubricate the threads and rings. When done adjusting, clean off the lube to keep from attracting as much dirt. If a light lube is used, it's easier to clean, and it won't end up splattered everywhere.
Thanks. I thought I was the only neanderthal left hitting things with a hammer. Going to go to Lowes later for aluminum rod.
Or brass rod.
It was another awesome day on the Blue Ridge Parkway today.
I made a few side trips.
I've got to head back to Kentucky tomorrow but I plan to take a scenic route.
My 450L is for sale in the flea market.
Spare the rod, spoil the child?
Super tidy setup, those bags look perfect on the bike. Weather looks like it was a hit too.
@KYwoodsrider how are you making it through 40 degree nights? Despite my svelte XXXL frame, once I hit my 50's, I lost my resistance to cold.
I use an insulated sleeping pad with a 20F rated goose down quilt.
I'm also a really tough dude.
Those from the great white north don't count, you have an unfair advantage!
After 3 days of perfect weather today was a mix of rain, fog, sun and strong wind
I had to pack up in the rain and left in the rain.
My route was taking hwy 28 through Fontana to Deals Gap then hwy 129 (aka "The Dragon").
I love this route but it's steep and curvy. In the rain with some wet leaves it deserves a very high level of respect.
Ask the guy who flipped a Ferrari on the Dragon yesterday.
Only a few pics today
Here we are some where on the Dragon.
This is from the famous overlook on the Dragon of Calderwood Dam

hey folks. After waiting 2 months for an Arrow muffler to arrive from Italy, I immediately installed it - which was quite simple. While I appreciate the nearly 6lbs drop in weight, I don't like the increase in sound. I knew it would be louder than stock, which i was fine with, but didn't expect it to bother me this much. I picked the Arrow because I heard it was quieter than the Yoshi. Well, it looks like I'm going to go back to stock and stick with that. Too bad, cuz it looks nice.
I'll probably post this up for sale sooner than later.
And I have also ground the tip of the rod to fit nice into the segments of the spaner notches,
If some of you would sell me your old stock cans I’ll “ Off-road “ them as an exchange,
With Baffle Mod BM,
Cuts weight, frees up top end and is quieter than stock,,,,
And had been providing me with 10,000 miles
Of Happiness on my 19 L !!
Putting in some work in Bucks County, PA
Looks like Sheep Hole Rd between Geigel Hill and Headquarters roads. Fun area…
Winner winner chicken dinner!!! With a pit stop at Brig O Doon
