How did you compress the spring? Every spring compressor that is available at local parts stores will not fit. Did you have any difficulties with the fuel line connector or the pump line?

My 04 has a FOX shock and I was able to get enought slack in the spring to get the keeper out.

Thanks for the reply, My bike is a 99 and you can't wind it out enough, just found a motorcycle coil spring compressor on amazon and will try that one out.

FYI in 04 there is no such thin as a V92. You have a TC[Touring Cruiser] or a TCD[Touring Cruiser Deluxe]

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Don't know if this will help anyone but it worked for me. I simply backed the shock way back till about an inch left in threads, and it softened up the suspension enough so when I sit on bike my feet are flat on the ground with a slight knee bend. Perfect! It hasnt effected my ride either...I weigh 185 and my GF is 100 pounds and we have no problem with suspension too soft. Saved myself a few bucks.

Lowering with preload is never a good idea, and with V92s you can top out the suspension and drop the spring keeper from the shock.
