Rear Shock Adjustment
Yup, another thread on this. I've looked at archives till I'm fuzzy and think I have the top adjustment figured out. Mine is a 2011, so I can turn the top adjustment bolt clockwise to 5, then counter-clockwise back to 1...right ?? I can see #5 showing, so, since the new 6.6 kg spring is now installed I may be able to back off on it a bit, eh ??
I'm still puzzled over the lower screw, tho'. When I pulled the shock off the bike, the screw was about flush with the surface. When the shop swapped springs for me today - he said they had an awful time with it, but it's done (for $38) - he backed off that lower screw to where it's standing proud of the surface about 1/16" to 1/8". Not much is said about that thing in the archives.
What exactly does it do and how do I tell which setting it's on ?? How do I tell which setting I need ?? Bike will be back together tomorrow and I'm anxious to see how all this stuff is going to work for me.
