Ok now I understand that there is just one shock absorber that’s fine and it has a sizeable spring in which the shock absorber sits. Now the question is, if I would want to…say remove that spring and put a tougher …ie…a stronger one on it. Can the hydraulic shock be taken out….? Or is it all built as one unit and can not be changed. I am finding that I get a better and smoother ride when I set the preload to about 12 to 15 and that just me on it only. In the idea world would like to get same smoothness at “ 0 “ preload if possible and only need the preload when I am riding two up and fully loaded saddle bags and such.
I only wish that I would have a junk rear suspension unit in my hands...so I could see for myself how this thing is put together....then I would know if it can or can not be done.
