Maybe someone can help me here... I cannot find the page in the dashboard to adjust the preload (passengers and luggage) y circle from grips to data to shock damping force. Off course the engine is running and in neutral. Thanks
The procedure is simply to page through the function display using the menu switch. Only the grip warmer, info display & damping force are available functions when riding - the preload adjustment will only appear when the bike is stopped with the engine running, best without any load on the bike to give the servo a chance. I assume the dash is reporting that you are in neutral & you have no ES warning light. It is possible to overheat the preload servo, but the system should always reboot itself once it cools down after around 6 minutes.
If preload still isn't showing for some reason, then it will be a trip to your dealer to check for codes, as late model bikes require an OBD reader.
This has happened to me a time or two. I'm not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong, or the computer is "glitching". Because, sometimes, it suddenly shows up as I'm pushing buttons/switches. My son says his FJR does the same thing. Like I said. . . . it's not out of the question that we're having a brain fart, and doing something wrong. . . . but , we don't think so.
Mine has never done that if in neutral and running. I'm pretty sure I have the kickstand up, but I don't think that is required. Once you get to the settings and try to change them is when I usually get the sequence wrong, menu select vs up/down.
