Unfortunately, my '89 Ninja 600 didn't come with the owner's manual, and I have a question for anyone who's familiar with this bike, or has the owner's manual. On the rear suspension, in addition to the 4 damping settings, there is a schrader air valve. My question is if this is an air assist for the spring, or is it an air bleeder valve of some kind? It would be great if I could increase preload by simply adding air.

Also, is there any adjustability in the front suspension? I don't believe there is, but it would be nice if I were wrong.

Thanks.

Hey, I have an 88 600R, the air valve is to add air pressure to shock to
adjust dampening. Dont put more than 27lbs in it though as it is said that
it will blow the internal seals. And your right the front shocks are not adjustable, however if you need to add more preload you can put longer preload spacers into the top of the forks.

Cool... I think I'm going to play with different air pressures then and see what I come up with. Thanks a lot for the info.
