So when I had my local bike shop setup my initial suspension settings for me, he noted that after setting the sag, the rear rebound seemed a bit much. He didn't have a tool that would get through the hold in the swingarm without getting trapped.

Any idea where I buy the tool needed to adjust the rear shock rebound on my 848?

It looks like a rod with a ball hex end on it, no idea what size.

Thanks!

Were it me, I'd get a ball end allen wrench, cut the bent end off, and weld or braze it to an extension rod long enough to reach the adjuster.

Isn't there something in the tool kit?
The awesome tool kit includes a universal wrench for everything on the motorcycle, a 3mm allen wrench. A ball end allen wrench works better however.

My rebound is backed all the way out. I don't remember what my compression is set to now. Pre-load backed all the way out.

From 848 Workshop manual:

STANDARD setting:
from the fully closed position (turned fully clockwise), unscrew:
rebound adjuster (1): 2 turns;
compression adjuster (2): 2 turns;
spring preload: 20 mm.

I bought an extended 3mm ball end allen wrench with a screwdriver type handle from Snap-On. I think it's original purpose was to adjust a distributor on some type of car.

Dan Kyle mentioned it in a thread on another forum and I went out and bought one.

You can also get an extended ball end allen wrench that goes on a ratchet. It works great you just have to be very sensitive to the "clicks"
