hey, i pulled the plastic off my 50 and found the ishock spring not compressed, the preload adjuster backed completely off 8O it seems that the preload adjustment turns easily, is it supposed to? is this a problem?

sounds like its set too loose...try to tighten it down on the spring and then with a aspanner wrench tighten it down........get it so that its a few turns from initial contact with the spring.......that way the spring acts as a lock washer and holds it from turning itself loose.......if that doesnt work then something is wrong with it.



if after that doesnt work talk to mxishock or shiftwideopen. or just give them a call. www.mxishock.com

i had the preload tightened in a fair amount, enough that i think its odd for it to back all that way off while riding.. ive turned it back on but im just wondering what made it turn off

tighten the preload(height ajuster, or the threads and round thing that needs to be in contact with the spring on the outside) the pressure of the spring should keep it from turning again. the spring probly wore in, loosened, and allowd the ajuster to turn.



one thing though, wasnt that soft as fu [ |< ?



edit;sorry, you guys type fast :lol:

hey, no it wasnt soft at all, actually when i sat on the bike it didnt have any sag, it was stiff.. but yes the shock is fairly new and the spring could have wore in, i bent my frame the other day and im wondering if that would have given it more leverage and it backed off?
