Hi Guys

Why is it every time i touch this bike nothing is straight forward and easy.:think:

My problem today is setting up my suspension, i am trying to set the preload on the front forks, i turn the preloader 17mm nut and nothing it stays flush with the top of the fork, i have turned it counter clockwise (softer) until it wont turn anymore(takes ages) i then turn it clockwise (harder) again until it will not turn anymore(takes even longer as my arm is dead by now),

please help

Thanks in advance

I know with my Ohlins R/Ts that 1 complete turn equals 1mm of adjustment, It has 18mm of adjustability. The adjuster itself doesn't move up or down, the adjustment is done internally. Take a wrench out on the road with you and make adjustments there, make sure you adjust each side evenly obviously.

As ZDM says theres no external movement up or down its all inside .
