Hi, Although the subject may have been on this site before, I have found an old multiperpose peddle cycle spanner that is flat and can adjust the rear suspension without having to remove the exhaust, as some garage had said to a previous post,Hope it helps. (Tried to attach photo and failed). Tashy.

I also have two multi-purpose devices that I have found work well to adjust the suspension.



They're called hands. Smile

Should be one of those in the toolkit that (usually) comes with the Wing. (Known as a'C' spanner IIRC). Hi Yo's method works for me too, but the spanner's useful if the adjusters are a bit stiff.
As for removing the exhaust - Why?? No need to do that. Sounds to me as though the garage tech didn't want to be bothered to do the job!

I'm not sure why this post has been started in a another window
but an I can't find out because of a altercation with Comcast. But yes the tool in discussion had been included in the past but eliminated in latter years,or by a previous owner. If the scooter is raised on the center stand it is usually easy with bare hands or with a pair gloves to adjust the rear suspension. Howard
