    Hi

    Just bought a BMW 1200gs second hand 2007 and there are so many adjustment for the shock. Actually I feel all small stuff on the road from my back wheel, does anybody can give me a tip to have it smooth.

    Thanks :happy1:

    Hi Friends, hi Pascal,

    Surprisding as the 1200 GS is one of the most comfortable bike ever build with the ajustable rear shock, either "manual" or controlled with a remote button.

    Just adjust rightly the shock and it will be marvel.

    You may want to check that it hasn't "blown".
    After some off-road antics by The Snail for a video shoot, my OE shock gave up the ghost.
    Take it in to your local dealer, if you are unsure.

    Good luck
