Hey! '09 Versys, green, just bought it in North Carolina. Loving this bike - last was a Suzuki SV650S, and I wanted something that was similarly light and fun but with fewer visits to the chiropractor after multiple-hour rides
My biggest problem right now is that I'm just not very mechanical. I'm trying to adjust my suspension (I'm 180lbs, and the stock settings [imho] feel high and floaty, like I'm sitting on top of, and not in, the saddle... if that makes sense). After a while I figured out the rear... first I set the H/S spinner thing to full Soft, which really helped for a smoother ride. Next, I increased the preload by a couple of clicks on the rear (it literally took me like an hour just to figure out how to do that... because so much force/that extender bar is required, I was pretty sure I was just going to break something if I used the adjuster tool in the obvious way).
Now the front feels a little high, and cornering is not as easy as it was (I think). But I have *no idea* how to adjust the front. I've seen lots of posts about how many turns this or that way to adjust things... but I can't find anything about what you turn, what tool you turn it with, etc! I tried fitting the OEM tools, but none of them seemed to match anything on the front forks.
Could somebody help me out?
Greetings and thanks,
