I know I saw a picture of the tool needed to adjust the rear suspension on the V-Rod but just can't seem to find it now. It amazes me that H-D didn't include this tool with the bike but anyway I am trying to purchase one and had no luck at my local H-D store. They didn't know what I was talking about.
Does anyone know the part number and can anyone give some advice on which settings work best for different weights of rider and passenger?

Thanks

Thanks Quicksilver. I knew I had seen a pic of it somewhere.
Unfortunately that part number doesn't show up on the HD website search. I'll show the parts guy the pic and see what happens.

You can get an aftermarket wrench. I picked up a spanner wrench for under $10 that works fine. Unfortuneatley I threw out the specifics but its the same spanner used on all HD models.

What should be the correct adjustment for 205lb. driver and 105lbs. passenger. Is there a guide to follow?

shock settings

I set mine at 3, but it is pretty stiff, I may set it back down. I weigh about 220 and carry passengers occasionally. If you carry a passenger a lot, I would set it at 3 or 4 depending on your combined weight.
