    Question Wing Ride Preset

    6398D653-204C-4093-BABD-BFC5849C0878.jpeg

    I have a Roadsmith kit on my 2012 Wing. I do not have the Accuride option, but I do still have the adjustable rear preset. The dealer set it at 15. I tried it at 20, and my wife likes the way it absorbs bumps better. It looks like the preset goes up to 25. What are you running?

    Road smith just dropped off my bike, I checked it and it was set at zero. I need to play around with the settings and see what differences I notice. I ride alone

    Make sure the pump is full, set it to 25 and leave it there!

    RoadSmith told me to set the adjustment at zero for the best ride

    I assume if you want the suspension tighter, you would adjust it higher.

    The preload setting depends on load. Not all Goldwingers are made the same, some ride with partners/trailers, others ride alone. Less load, less preload. The final setting will be up to each individual - playing around with different preload settings, or even shock settings, will help you achieve the ride you like the best.
