So I tried to adjust with my hands and no luck. This was my third time trying to adjust that mofo. I rode down to the dealership today and was not able to find the oem adjustment tool so I bought a double sided tool that ended up being way too long. I had to cut the tool in half and then weld on a piece of steel at a 90 degree angle. After I jacked the bike up AND removed the dog bones AND sprayed everything with wd40 I was finally able to adjust the spring three turns tighter(using one hand to crank and the other to hold the tooth in the notch) before the tooth on the end of the wrench broke off...notch 7 it is!
The "5 minute" job only took me 2 hours of wrenching, 2 hours of riding and $12.
