My Burgman feels like the rear suspension is solid, it's granite-stiff and borders on painful. I want to soften it a bit, but wonder: can this be done on the centre stand, or do I need some sort of lift?

You just need a robust hand grip. Turning it ... clockwise, if I remind correctly, which come easier for the spring to extend helping you, until you see the "1" facing you back of the scooter. 1 is the most soft position, 5 the hardtest. I made it myself and it was nothing impossible to move. It can be done while the scooter is on the center stand with no problems.

650 or 400?

650 has standard MC shock setup. 1 is softest - 5 is hardest/firmest.

What is your tire pressure?

The 400 has a the mono-shock or uni-shock? it adjust differently on the pre-'07 models than the post '07 models .... but both are mono/uni shock.

YES, they can each be adjusted from the center stand. No lift required.

Google or YouTube .... and maybe download a inexpensive manual for future reference.

update:

Jarlaxle, see this video.

BTW, get familiar with all this guys videos on '07 and up 400's.

And, check your rear tire pressure. Many on here recommend running higher pressures than the manual recommends. While it does increase your tire wear miles and is helpful if riding two up ... but the higher tire pressure on rear kills my back. YMMV
