Post Shocks adjustment.

Afternoon peeps.
Is there anyone local that could help me out with adjusting my shocks. They are currently set up for a 22 stone rider. I niether have the tools nor experience to adjust them myself. But am willing to do the work under supervision or at the very least make the brews.
Getting them done at a garage is currently out of the question.

Cheers
Ste.

Girth had his SV1000 set up by K-Tech for a very reasonable sum IIRC, maybe drop him a PM to see how much it all cost?

ste - I know money is tight but I went to Kais (i think thats it) near to you

absolutely brilliant..


failing that there are some good set up guides on line.. its easy really ish.. in terms of adjusting.. usually just a flat head screwdriver.. hardest thing is c spanner which should be in your tool kit..

Cheers Quiff, but just got it done from Spod in warrington, they charged me a tenner. The bike feels great, no twitchiness when cornering.
