i was attempting to adjust the lower damper on the rear factory shock of my 2000 929. it wouldnt budge. eventually i got it to move, but i think i broke it. now it spins very easily and never bottoms out.

questions:

1: is it broke?

2: is it possible to repair only the adjuster?

3: do you think i have any damping at all right now? (really dosent feel like it)


not intersted in spending the cash on an aftermarket shock


thanks

It does sound like it's toast, and the settings that the shock was at when the adjustment screw (presumably) broke is most likely where the shock is at right now.

FWIW, rear shocks are awfully cheap on eBay...

I've heard of that happening to several others on the stock shock. Unfortunately, I think it's toast.

I've seen shocks on e-bay listed as stock for the 929. Some have white springs and some have yellow springs.

Wonder what's the deal with that?

I think the 2000 had white springs and the 2001 had yellow springs
