    2020 Stock Setting from the Owners Manual

    Hello,
    I am picking up a 2020 Z900 in a few days.  Unfortunately, it doesn't have the owner's manual.

    Can someone point me to the 2020 stock suspension settings and steps from the manual?

    I'm sure I'll make changes but need a starting point.

    Also,
    What size is the nut for front preload?
    Do I need a spanner wrench for rear preload, or is it something else?

    Spanner is difficult to use because of frame (not enough space for spanner to turn). I used hammer and flat screwdriver to adjust rear shock preload. To be precise, i used that only for locknut: after it was loosened,i rotated spring with my hand and adjustment nut followed spring. Hammer and screwdriver again to tighten lock nut.

    Hi,
    The rear preload needs a C spanner, the toolkit under the seat should have one if not they are easily available.
    If you remove the trim over the RHS frame then the collar is more accessible, although it will still only move a little at a time.
    Hope this helps,
