If you look at the collar above the spring ,it has some holes that the bar fits into and adjusts your preload .:thumbup
Did you get the heavier spring ? From all accounts your a large lad and will prolly need it .:yes

PC4 is going under the fat arse, decided to ditch the top gun and just use that as the undertail.. You know, so it's easily accesible :laugh

Well after a long day out in the backyard (i do things a little slowly :laugh) the Bitubo is all mounted up and lookin good.. God damn that rotary POS weighs a tonne :banghead

Was damn hot out today. After waking up having some fruit loops for brekkie, it was off to go pick up a few little things i needed to get the job done, plus pick up some other bits and pieces for the other things i was planning (charge mod and riflemans 1/5th).. Once i got home it was time to get stuck in :devious

Turns out it's not too hard to change out the stocker, but i was back and forth between the bike and the computer to make sure i was doing things right. As the temperature kicked up i started getting a headache, but i was determined to get things done so i pushed on.. Got the Bitubo installed, rear wheel back on, adjust the chain and i'm feeling pretty chuffed about it.. So i move onto making the charge mod harness, got that installed but before i could test it all the headache was getting the better of me and i wasn't feeling well.. Went inside and seeing though i hadn't eaten anything since breakfast, thought i'd make myself a sandwich to try and feel a bit better.. Bad move :laugh by the time i had eaten 3/4 of it, my stomach wasn't enjoying it and it was a rush to the toilet and :puke:puke:puke

It's good to see i have my priorties right, bitubo before health :laugh

So now tomorrow will be testing the charge mod, and installing the 1/5th and then the big test ride... I'll be grinning like a Mo Fo by the days end :laugh
