thanks for the info...11stryker said:I find it easiest to do with bike jacked all the way up(no weight on rear tire) and then take small right side plastic cover off( the one with the Star logo). Then take long slim rod and you can easily move adjustment ring. Super easy with lowering spring installed. with lowering spring- I found upper most notch(#9) the best if you have a passenger and luggage. otherwise it is bottoming out on rubber bumber on shock shaft.
