shock adjustment locking nut wont loosen

Recommended Posts

im trying to set the sag on my rm 85, and i need to tighten the nut on the rear shock but the locking nut wont come loose. i've tried WD-40, hasn't worked. To loosen it i have been touching it with a screwdriver and hitting the screwdriver with a mallet. I've also tried just tightening the bottom nut, and that didn't work either. any suggestions as to how i can tighten it?

Righty Tighty Lefty Loosy, i had to hammer the crap outta my 125 lock nut, onces its free though you should be good. So basically hit it towards the back if your working from the left side of the of the bike. Also make sure the screwdriver is a little rounded or you will end up marring the locknuts little teeth.

I find it frees up easier if you can alternate side when you hit, always on the right side of the shock to loosen but say, one hit from one side of the bike, then one hit from the other.
