Re: Riding 2up

I am planning on riding 2up. What are some mods that I need to make to the suspension?

Re: Riding 2up

If your bike is stock, and untouched, nothing. It's pretty much set up for 2-up from the factory.*




*that is, if the #2 weighs less than 160#

Re: Riding 2up

The total weight limit of the bike is 350 if I remember correctly.... Are you going to be over that?

Re: Riding 2up

I just crank up the rear preload, if you're anywhere near the 350 lb area put you preload on the #9 position i had great luck with this. Don't worry about the front.

Maybe a sidecar is a better bet.
