Default adjusting shocks on super glide

Is there anyway to adjust the shocks on a 2002 superglide?

Easy to do with a spanner wrench in the holes at the bottom of the shock. Just turn them. It can be done without a spanner but you risk ruining the finish on the shock. I bet you have a buddy that has a spanner wrench. Just ask!

I carry one, if the ole lady wants a smooth shot over bumps I run it up to 3 or 4 depending on the road Im going on. I keep it at two for just me most times, sits a little lower and corners well for me at that set.

Before I got the H-D spanner, I used a rubber strap wrench, like you see everywhere. It worked, without scratching, but the dealer spanner works perfect - no hassle

And my settings are exactly the same as arnold's -the scootjust seems to work best there.

I have the spanner and on my Low Rider I have a numbering system on the bottom of the shock so I know what level its on. I set mine on 2 for single 3 for two up.
