First of all, I apologize for stealing the pic, but it had the best angle.



What are those? I noticed mine were all the way tightened down so I got a wrench and lifted them back up to about 6 "washers" or whatever they are.

I can't "search" as I have no idea that those are...i'm guessing the suspension my bike came with was all jacked up from it's previous owner

Those are your preload adjusters or your compression adjusters, you have both circled in the picture. Your compression adjustment is the flathead screw in the middle, the preload adjuster is the ~14mm(not sure exact size) blue bolt head. I would suggest finding a suspension guy and having him do a basic setup for you, or do a search for how to properly set your sag.

Um is in fact your rebound adjuster that adjusts at the top of the fork with a flatblade, not your compression adjuster its located at the bottom of the fork.

Inverted forks are the same for the most part the cartridge still sits the same way up in the fork. Some of the european forks are the other way round with Comp adj in one leg and rebound adj in the other. Most or all the jap stuff I've seen has the rebound adjuster at the top and comp at the bottom.

The blue bolts in that picture are not equal, are they supposed to be like that? Shouldn't they be the same? And how would I adjust them?

The blue bolts are preload adjuster?
