I've put 3200 miles on my previous Avon 240 with with hardly any wear noticeable. About 1/2 my riding is 2 up.
Hey Toby- yes #9 setting. L&M spring lowers bike by actually using a shorter but stiffer spring than stock. which leaves much less travel in shock than standard spring. Ends up hitting Jounce Bumper(rubber bumper on shock shaft) when fully loaded. was ok at Stock # 4 or 5 position with me just riding solo though. As soon as I get my new wheel w/250 avon on tomorrow- I will see if I have enough room between tire and inner fender supports with L&M Spring installed. I may have to put stock spring back in and I bought PCS lowering kit just in case so that I can lower it only 1". Will have my results tomorrow. Was going to start it today, but what the Hey- It's New Years Day!!Toby said:11Stryker,when you say top notch I assume you mean the hardest setting #9. Correct if I'm wrong. Mine is set on #1 the softest setting and it doesn't bottom out 2 up fully packed. But I don't have it lowered. But my question is if the soft setting might be contributing to the faster than normal ware I'm getting on the rear tire?11Stryker said:Mine is at top notch, but I have the L&M Lowering spring also. When we ride 2up with baggage shock would bottom out on hard bumps any lower than top setting. But it is very smooth ride at top setting. We live in a pothole infested part of the state.
