Ok so I decided yesterday to adjust my pre load up to the 3rd setting. I had been a year riding in the 2nd and bottomed out a fair amount. This bottoming out would occur in normal riding, over normal small undulations in the road.
So I proceed to do the adjustment. Did the muffler side 1st. Well the spanner wrench slipped off while I am using it. Bam goes my hand against something. Cut pretty bad in 2 areas. A bunch of cussing, and bleeding, and 3 baindaids later I am back out at the bike. Check the setting at muffler, it had gone to the 3rd setting right before slipping off.
Now to the other side. Before doing this though, I slipped on my mechanic gloves. This side is a pain in the but, no room, but got it done.
Went on a very long ride afterwards. Bike felt very good, did not notice as much bottoming out. Glad I went ahead and did this but my left hand middle finger (yea that middle finger) is now covered in a thick akward wrap.
Why can Vespa make it a little easier to do this adjustment? I now remimber why I waited so long to go up to the 3rd leval, Beale.
