v-strom preload info & insight

vstrom preload dial

general info:

  • all it does is change your ride height and your sag
  • it has no effect on suspension stiffness – use a stiffer spring and/or heavier fork oil up front to stiffen

adjustment:

  • stock vstrom 650 is 16 clicks from minimum, which is generally sprung too lightly, especially for the average american
  • check the lines scribed around the barrel under the shock top to see how many are showing
  • 40 clicks total
  • there are five lines total, approximately 8 clicks per line
  • check the lines scribed around the barrel under the shock top to see how many are showing
  • all five is probably the best choice for two-up with luggage, depending on overall weight
