Ride a 2004 KLR without any problems.
I need advice on the makeup of a rear shock. The one I am looking at is a BMW SHOWA that has the preload built into the top end of the shock. While leaning on the bike the owner heard a “pop” or “click” and the adjustment changed. As if the first few turns of the preload adjuster were lost. You can turn it in and “firm” up the rear end, but backed out there is slop.
Does anyone know what the mechanics are of this adjuster. Mechanical? Hydraulic?? I find a lot of information on resovier type assemblies but nothing on the ones with the adjusting screw mounted tangentially to the shock.
My first thought is that something slipped or snapped.

Thanks for any leads
