I plan on riding 2 up and adjusted the stock shocks on my 06 Jackpot. Tightened the adjustment nut leaving about 1/2" of threads below it. Plan on riding tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone adjusted their shocks and if so how far or how much thread is below the adjustment nut. Don't want to bottom out and have to buy another ACM, again. Thanks
Wouldn't adjusting them depend on what kind of roads you have.
On how big you are and how much your passenger weighs.
What does your manual give you for guide lines.
What does it matter what others are doing do what you think is best for you
Please add your state and model of bike you have. Click user CP @ top of page and then far left click edit signature. Thanks
I adjusted mine going by ride height from bottom of frame to the ground. I needed to raise it up about 1/4 in to adjust for weight of 2 up
worked great for me and I dont notice any difference when I am alone on the bike.

RYCHEMIND how much did you have to turn the adjustment nut for that 1/4"?
VISIONJOHNNY of course those come into play. I'm curious because I tightened the adjustment nut almost all the way down and still is lower than 4 1/2" (manual recommendations). 2 up we're about 365 lbs. Doesn't seem to change when I tighten it. We did ride yesterday though and no scraping. So I guess all is well.
