Adjustable Suspension

So the J300 will ride on 37mm front forks and a double rear shock with 5 adjustable preload settings. Do you think the front suspension will be adjustable at all? Not for anything but not only are soft front forks a nuisance they are also highly dangerous!

I can't say for sure but I would think they would be adjustable. What reason would they have to make them not? It is one of the few parts of the J300 that people would really want to tinker with.

cost. Its more expensive to include an adjustable front end then a fixed one, plus most scooter owners don't tinker too much.

its better they don't. if you want something to tinker around with like this, get a sport bike. i think they should just calibrate things to whats best and leave it

Can anyone help me. I recently hit a quite severe dip in the road and as you J300 riders know, they dont ridebumpy roads very well.
The day after, I noticed oil on my back wheel and when I looked I found the rear right shock absorber is leaking.
Are these repairable or ha anyone got one for sale.
And help apreciated. AG
