Default Adjusting Rear Shock

Anyone know how to adjust the rear shock on a Kingpin? Any special tools required? Will be riding two up with gear and want to max out rear shock.

Pull the right side cover, remove bolts from fuse block and move it out of the way. Will need a spanner wrench to adjust the coil over.

I bought a universal spanner wrench from my dealer for about $6, it seems to work OK. Its a universal polaris wrench, not victory specific.

looks like part number 2877408 its a polaris number I believe, and it was $5.49.

I was sold a spanner wrench with the P/N of PV-46993. Supposedly this is a Polaris mechanic's tool only, but the local mechanic ordered extra to sell. Pricey at $35, but definitely fits the ring nut on the Kingpin rear shock. Just finished adjusting. Needed a 10mm socket with an extension to remove three bolts for fuse bracket and one bolt for brake fluid chamber. Chalk this up as the first thing I've done on my Victory. I was given the advice that a little WD-40 on the threads helps and breaking the two ring nuts loose with a little tap of the hammer helps.

Hammer and punch works, but be careful not to ding up the nut to much, the two will not work smoothly against each other and will be harder to adjust in the future.
