THREADED SPRING PRELOAD ADJUSTER

Pre-load on the spring is adjusted on the basis information of average weight

– Useing small screw to lock or unlock the spring preload

– Turn worm screw to the left to release lock of the spring preload before adjusting

– Turn worm screw to the right to lock the spring preload

 

REBOUND ADJUSTABLE

There is a rebound knob at the base of the YSS shock (pic 1). You can adjust rebound to the maximum 30 clicks.

• Turning the knob to the right (clockwise) to increase rebound damping
• Turning the knob to the left (counter clockwise) to reduce rebound damping When you turn the knob, you can hear and feel noticeable “CLICK” . It is easy to repeat settings.

NOTE!

• Steps of 5-10 clicks are recommended to get into the ball-park before making small adjustments-always take notes.
• Test run on your familiar road to learn how the new setting affected your bike before adjusting the next step.

• If the bike feels unstable, loose and bouncy then the rebound damping should be increased (pic 2)

 

• If the bike is hard and bumpy then the rebound damping should be decreased (pic 3).

 

COMPRESSION ADJUSTABLE

There is a knob to adjust compression damping on the external reservoir. You can adjust compression damping to the maximum 30 clicks as (pic 4)

• Turning the knob to the right to increase Compression damping
• Turning the knob to the left to reduce Compression damping

 

ADJUSTMENT OF COMPRESSION DAMPING

• If the bike feels soft and has a tendency to bottom out easily then the compression damping should be increased (pic 5).

 

• If the bike feels harsh and has hard resilience, over changes in the road, then the compression damping should be reduced (pic 6).

 

LENGTH ADJUSTABLE

The YSS shock can be length adjusted (depending upon model and length of shock chosen). The shock length can be adjusted to find the suitable ride height, and to change the handling characteristics of the front end. The adjustment range usually is +10 mm. on the shock. Adjustment of the length of shock absorber Use a 21 wrench and a 24 wrench to do the length adjusting. Each complete turn of the shock absorber gives one millimeter (pic 7).

• Shock absorber gives one millimeter (pic7).
• Release lock nut; turn the lock nut to the left with a 24 wrench.
• Turning an end eyelet (O-eye) to the left to increase shock’s length.
• Turning an end eyelet to the right to decrease shock’s length.
• Tighten lock nut; turn the lock nut to the right with a 24mm. wrench.
