I wish we have a section for parts or tools swap or the like. That we could post our extra tools or parts that were laying around in the garage. So others maybe able to purchase from you, also help clean up your garage.

Anybody has an extra Spanner honda Code 0469445 that was used to adjust the setting of rear shocks.

Haven't tried the stealer yet. I don't think it will cost too much. But like I said, if your garage is crowded by this extra Spanner. I'll be glad to help you out. Need a Spanner Icon_smile

To be honest you don't need a spanner to adjust the shocks. I adjust mine simply by gripping them with my hand and twisting them to the desired position. Do this regularly to avoid them seizing up.

Really? You must have a strong grip. I'll give it a try when I got home. Thanks.

The mechanic said the same when he was 'showing me round' the bike when I collected it - hand-job!

I did the same with my X9 as Bob says - regular twisting keeps them free and the X9 ones do have an adjusting tool which I rarely had to use.

Manual adjustment does work. I don't have a strong grip due to an accident, (non bike related). Wear gloves for extra grip if needed.

Remember the silencer/muffler will be hot after use. Teaching grandma to suck eggs, I know, but better than burnt knuckles.

If you place the SWing on the center stand (to relieve some pressure on the rear shocks), then the rear shocks should adjust much easier.
