So the front adjustments were easy, the back is where I got a little confused. I adjusted the rear compression dampening with a straight screw driver. The one that is on the little reservior. Then I was trying to adjust the rebound adjuster, and they say turn the shiny knurled bit at the bottom. Looks like this:

Mine doesnt have that. Only thing down there is another straight screw driver adjustment. And when I went to adjust the rear preload, you have to like lift the rear of the bike of first to get a tab out of a groove, then move it. They said set it 5 from soft. Why would you want the spring pretty much all the way extended? Thanks.

Might be a different year model rebound adjustor.

Most late model bikes have a flat blade to adjust rebound.

Taking weight off the suspension can make it easier to adjust preload

Best thing to do is set up the preload for YOUR weight. A basic bounce on the forks and seat will give ball park figures, then bounce on the tank to balance comp and rebound.

Just take the bike to a shop!
