kz750-h1 has an adjustment for the rear springs where there es a stepped turning adjuster for adjusting the ride height/spring/shock ratio. I would like to get myself a battle axe for the back seat so the tire doesn't spin under hard acceleration/passing, I just wanted to know what some ideas were for the load and shock stiffness. I am also considering a wider swingarm and tire.

If your rear tire slips on dry pavement under hard acceleration, you either have an old HARD tire OR you need to take it a little easier on the throttle.......or both.
You should kool your jets a bit........really.

The shock adjustment is there ONLY to set the "sag" point and to help keep the shock in the middle of it's operating range and to prevent bottoming out.
It does NOT make any siginificant difference in the shock or spring rate.

Well, I have had the tire for exactly a year now. Dunlop elite 3 130-90-16-h tire that I got at Seattle cycle center because it was the only shop open on Monday. I am going to recheck the tire pressure and let some out.
I had a blowout on i-5, over 200 for towing from seattle to lake forest park then another 130 for the tire, mounted on the rim free of extra charge, then another 30 for brake pads. Thats what I get for being an idiot.
I think the tire might be the problem due to being from a scooter shop.
I am going to burn it out until it blows in the driveway before I get a shinko 230 v rated tire like I have on the front. the tire is still legal, it is just the tread pattern is not satisfying my critical point of view. the center is mostly bare and the tread cuts go to the sides.
