OK, it's been hashed and re-hashed, but, you all know how I roll by now! LOL. I have a 240 kit and F&G lowering. First ride the tire rubbed and wore the plate wires down and caused a short. No speedo, tach, or signal lights. Not good. So, the dealer re-wired the light and I now have a 1000lb spring. Solo it's fine. 2 up....yep, same problem, wore the wires again with my wife on the bike, at night, 50 miles from home, no lights. I stopped at a auto parts store and fixed it in the parking lot. Bought some wire, fuses, stripers, black tape, wrench set to take the plate bracket off, the whole shabang! Got us home. Once at the house I re-wired the plate light wires and they are now out of the way. No more lights out problems. But, I don't want the tire rubbing whether the lights stay on or not. It's a $300 tire! . All that led into my question. Before I succumb to an adjustable lowering kit (I like it where it is) I know I can preload the spring and adjust the dampening of the shock. I'm willing to have a stiffer ride. I read the forums and the owners manual. I just want to know the steps to maybe stiffening the ride for 2 up, then back to cushy solo. Thanks. And let the links to past forums begin!
