A. Securely support motorcycle on jack.
B. Remove the stock shocks.
A. Apply blue thread locker to fasteners
B. Install fasteners and shocks in accordance to FIGURE A, B, or C, depending on the year of motorcycle
C. Torque fasteners to oem specifications. Check for adequate hose clearance from the tire/wheel, exhaust and any sharp wear surfaces. Make sure shocks rotate freely in both directions as shown in FIGURE E.
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.
Warning: If mounting Legend shocks with after market frame sliders, please refer to the included supplemental install guide
1. Install additional Legend supplied 5/16″ spacer between slider and stainless steel spacer
2. Legend supplied stainless steel spacer
3. Legend supplied aluminum spacer
A. Sit rider (with gear on), passenger and the load you intend on carrying, on motorcycle.
B. Measure the shock length from the center of the lower mounting bolt to the center of the upper mounting bolt (FIGURE B).
Refer to table A for the proper sag measurement, if the measured length is greater than the proper measurement, reduce spring preload (FIGURE A), if the measured length is less than the proper measurement, increase spring preload (FIGURE A).
Note 1: To adjust preload grasp spring with both hands and turn in the desired direction, while adjusting spring the rider and passenger should not be on the motorcycle.
Note 2: Springs should be adjusted the same amount on both shocks.
Note: Check tire pressure before making any suspension adjustments.
A. prior to test ride confirm both the compression and rebound setting are the same on both shocks and note the position of the compression and rebound settings. Turn the compression adjuster (FIGURE A) clockwise to the fully closed position and then back it out the desired number of “clicks” (4 “clicks” is usually a good starting point). Turn the rebound adjuster (FIGURE A) clockwise to the fully closed position and then back it out the desired number of “clicks” (3 “clicks” is usually a good starting point).
Note: The position of the compression and rebound setting are the number of “clicks” from the fully closed position (adjuster knob turned clockwise until it stops).
B. Test ride the motorcycle with your typical load and on a road that you are familiar with.
A. If you feel the suspension is too firm, especially on smaller bumps, decrease the compression damping (counter- clockwise), if you feel the suspension is too soft (bottoming out), increase the compression damping (clockwise).
B. Adjust the left and right compression adjusters 1 or 2 “clicks” (same amount on Left and Right) firmer or softer depending on preference and test ride again.
A. If you feel the suspension has a mushy or oscillating feel to it increase the rebound damping (clockwise). If the suspension feels slow reacting or feels harsh on closely spaced bumps,decrease the rebound damping (counter-clockwise).
B. Adjust the left and right rebound adjusters 1 or 2 “clicks” (same amount on Left and Right) firmer or softer depending on preference and test ride again.
Note: Only change one set of adjusters (compression or rebound) between test rides, in order to minimize the variables while testing.
