    Rear shock preload adjuster

    Also; does anyone know a of a source for the copper (could be aluminum, I guess) seals on the rear shock adjuster flex line? Mine has been leaking slowly for a long time, but seems to be getting progressivly worse.
    I think there are two on each end of the flex line; at the shock and at the adjuster knob. A common banjo fitting, but they're not the same size as the ones on the brake lines, which are bigger. I measured one once and can't remember what size it is. Either 6 or 8MM on the ID and 10 or so OD.
    None of the parts fiches that I've seen show these as a separate part.

    If this is for the K1200LT in your profile, try giving Bruno a call:

    Talking K1200 shock adjuster

    Wow.....must be losin my grip...
    it's a 2000 K1200LT. My guess is all of 'em with this type of preload setup use the same size flex hose and seals. I could be wrong. I was wrong once before. ( I thought I made a mistake, but I didn't)
    Anyway, tnx for the info.
