General Questions

First Harley just picked it up a couple of days ago. Laid a ninja down a few years ago and just getting going again.
1) How Can I adjust the shocks on my Street 750? Read all kinds of mixed advice.
2) What is the number after the LF message? Some say miles left others disagree.
3) Is there a decent fairing out there for it? Not looking to buy a bigger bike just yet. Want to get used to riding again on this one then get a bigger one.

Thanks in advance for any help fellas.

Welcome to the forums!

1) The Ariel GB videos are painful to watch, but yea, they show you how to use the wrench whereas the manual kind of glosses over it.
I had one dealer tell me that the wrench that fits our bikes is now a dealer only item, meaning they can get it for their techs but not sell it to the public. I don't know what's up with that, unless they are just in short supply and not foreseeing the demand to run another batch of them.

Here are the links I found online. Nothing direct from H-D nor through Surdyke when I searched by part number:
TOOL KIT-14900048A
TOOL KIT 14900048A / Other Products / - House-of-Flames Harley-Davidson

Most H-D dealerships I have been in have a shock adjustment wrench for Sportsters and some other models in stock. IT DOES NOT FIT THE XG SERIES. Have the parts guy verify it's the xg wrench before checking out with it.

2) I don't know what you mean by the "LF message" so can't comment.

3) There are a number of windshields on the market from several manufacturers and a batwing fairing made by Memphis Shades. Some windshields can be had for under $100, but the MS fairing is pushing $500 by the time you get brackets, windshield, turn signal relocation kit, and finally the fairing itself.

They will be able to adjust the shocks at your dealership. I believe it requires a special tool. The Low Fuel indicates arond one gallon left - about 4 mils or so. On the fairing - I do not have one..

I was able to ride 10 miles after the LF sing. Didn't want to push it past that.

I brought this spanner for less than 3 off ebay - adjusts the shocks easily:

The LF is the Low Fuel warning - the number after it is the distance you have travelled since it activated. They reckon it comes on when you have .8 of a gallon left.
