Rear Shock Sitting Low, Springs Worn Out?
My 2008 DL650 has done about 30,000km - about a fifth of that on dirt - and I want some advice on the rear suspension.
On a ride today I noticed the rear is sitting really low. When the bike was new my toes only just reached the ground. Now both feet are nearly flat on the ground. I'm a heavy guy (250lb) and that's probably contributed to the springs wearing out, I'm guessing. Full pre-load didn't make much of a difference.
What's the correct method for increasing the ride height? Can I do something similar to a tuneup? Or am I at least looking at new springs, or even a whole new suspension?
