You heard about the 10 things list about your bike. Well this would be on it. I am closer to 300lbs than I am to 200, so when riding over rail road crossings or pot holes I would have to lift my &$$ ass off the seat so as not to jar my spine. I heard you can adjust the shock on a vstar 1100, so I started searching for the special tool to do it after finding access to it. Low and behold, they provide one in your little tool kit. It's the little things that yamaha does that makes me glad I bought one. I am going to spay some engine cleaner on it tomorrow before doing it. Clean clean clean. Of course if it were a Harley, I would merely have to press a button to do it.
