Old Dude/New Bike

Hello, brought the 2016 XG 750 home with me this weekend, Had a choice of black or black, I chose black. My primary use for this vehicle is for curb hopping in my little city and checking out the local mountain roads and scenery. I have over the last 60 plus years owned and operated numerous bikes, a few Japanese but mostly Harley's. I enjoy the nimble and quick acceleration of the 750, it rides like no other Harley I have owned and is perfect for my current style of riding. Right off the bat I noticed a few factory concerns( The mirrors, and shifter to foot peg space) My Harley Dealership (Wind-River Harley Davidson, in Lawton Ok) has been more than accommodating with me, and is replacing the mirrors with taller and longer reach stems. I wear a 15 boot so the head-space and timing for the peg is a systemic problem. The Spanner wrench for the shocks is now my newest mission as I have not been 160 pounds since the 10th grade. Overall the few small problems I have encountered will not remove the smile from my face or darken my day.

The part you need to adjust the rear shocks is: Tool Kit part # 14900048A

It's not much to it, but it is the one you need. I bought one and it does the job.

TOOL KIT
