INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

STEP ONE: INSTALL SHOCKS

  1. With motorcycle properly supported on jack, remove the stock shocks.
  2. Apply blue threadlocker to the hardware and install fasteners and shocks in accordance to FIGURE A,B, or C, depending on the year of motorcycle. If installing REVO-A install with adjuster knob facing the rear of the motorcycle.
  3. Torque hardware to OE specifications.

WARNING:
Before purchasing or attempting to install shocks that are different than the OEM length, confirm that the wheel travel can be altered without causing clearance issues, such as swing-arm/axle to exhaust contact as well as chain/belt guard and tire clearance.

  1. DO NOT USE LARGE OEM FLAT WASHERS

STEP TWO: CHECK FOR PROPER MOUNTING

Once shocks are installed with the proper hardware FIGURE A, B, or C, (depending on the year of motorcycle) make sure you can rotate them freely in both directions FIGURE D.

 

IF SHOCKS DO NOT ROTATE FREELY, CHECK THAT THE HARDWARE IS INSTALLED CORRECTLY.

WARNING: If mounting Legend shocks with aftermarket frame sliders, please refer to the included supplemental install guide.

SET UP INSTRUCTIONS

STEP ONE: SET SAG

  1. Verify springs on each shock are adjusted evenly (same
    number of threads exposed below the spring) FIGURE E.
  2. Sit rider (with gear on), passenger, and the load you intend on carrying, on the motorcycle.
  3. Measure the shock length from the center of the lower
    mounting bolt to the center of the upper mounting bolt
    FIGURE E.
  4. Refer to the table below to determine the proper sag
    measurement based on the shock length purchased:
Shock Length Proper Sag Measurement
12" 11.5"
13" 12"
14" 13"
  1. If the measured length is less than the proper sag measurement, increase spring preload by threading spring UP the shock body to tighten spring (LESS SAG) FIGURE F.
  2. If the measured length is greater than the proper sag measurement, decrease spring preload by threading spring DOWN the shock body to tighten spring (MORE SAG) FIGURE F.
  3. Make equal adjustments to left and right shocks.
FIGURE E

STEP TWO: REBOUND DAMPING (APPLICABLE TO REVO-A)

  1. Rebound damping controls the speed at which the shock absorber extends after being compressed.
  2. If you feel the suspension has a mushy or oscillating feel to it, increase the rebound damping to a higher number. If the suspension feels slow reacting or feels firm on closly spaced bumps, decrease the rebound damping to lower number.
  3. Turn rebound adjuster to the same number on the left and right shocks, firmer or softer depending on preference and test ride again.
  1. Fine tune rebound damping: For Legend Air-A and Revo-A models. Machined recess below rebound adjuster indicates rebound setting.
  2. Setting 1: provides lowest level of rebound damping.
  3. Setting 3: provides intermediate level of rebound damping. IMPORTANT: most commonly used setting
  4. Setting 6: provides highest level of rebound damping.
  5. Machined recess on shock
