Your adjusting bolt sounds like it is broken. Will probably need to be disassembled to repair.

See this thread for more info on the rear suspension:

I just recently did this and it is very easy. Remove top bolt and 2 bottom bolts, slide the shock out and take to the MC shop, have them remove the spring, take home and fix the shock or fix in the parking lot but hammering the tabs down, give back to MC mechanic to put spring back on, pay the man at the counter $10, reinstall.
