It is best to rotate the shock adjustment bolt clockwise. If it feels too tight you might shoot a little WD-40 on the bolt.

Caution: when you adjust past the 5 setting it will Bang or Bop or Pow and return to the 1 setting. This makes a LOUD spring noise and can be scary the first time.

thanks, I got it. I just figured why not, it's a klr. Learn. Gave it a bit and wah-lah, it moved. Twisted it a bit. All good, thanks for the response. Can't believe how easy this thing is to work on.

Another thing is to have little or no weight on the KLR when adjusting the rear shock.

Definitely easy to work on though helps a lot if you know what to expect.
