Hello,

in hope to understand your question right :034:

Then front fork of the Crossrunner is not adjustable,it is default made by Honda.

One review I read said that the forks have "stepless preload adjustment"  - which caused me to look for the adjuster - until I saw other (clearer) reports which confirms that they are unadjustable (unlike the VFR?).

Shock absorber is apparantly adjustable but the stepped rebound adjuster is pretty hard to get at.

All mixed reports again Joe.  I've read on numerous sites that it has a stepless preload adjustment on the forks.  exactly the same as the vfr800 vtec.  I've removed the handle bar plastics but no preload adjusters...unlike the vfr vtec rc46.

This is rubbish for a bike meant for 2 up work with luggage and one up back lane fun. Easy adjustability makes all the difference to the ride quality.

This aspect is really putting me off buying one

Dont let the lack of front preload adjustment bother you.  It handles fine.  The forks are just set correctly

I've ridden it in both scenarios and I wouldn't want to adjust the forks even if they had adjusters, which to be honest, I haven't event checked.

Mine dives too much and its driving me mad.
 :023: :023: :023: Honda cutting corners while charging huge price. chaeers mr honda.

I am gona try test ride the 2013 version as honda aparantly modified foot rest position to make it less cramped.

The four things I hate about the crossrunner are
1-no adjustment of the front fork (cheap forks aswel)
2-seat is very very rubbish, extremely uncompfortable(I am thinking every how to make it compfortable)
3-footrest position way too back and high.
4-for 800cc bike I expected better fuel economy (cbf1000 MK2 can do 50pmg and larger cc, how is this possible?)
