The shock has an adjustable rebound and standard Hi/low compression. The optional independent hi/ low compression adjuster has a low speed brass screw and a seperate blue high speed hex. The rebound adjuster is at the bottom of the shock. The standard setting is 8 clicks out (counter clockwise) from full hard. To increase rebound damping turn the adjuster in (clockwise), this will slow the extension of the shock. To decrease rebound damping turn the adjuster out (counter clockwise) this will quicken the extension of the shock. The standard compression adjuster has a the slotted brass screw on the reservoir. The standard setting is 12 clicks out low/hi speed brass screw(counter clockwise) and 1.75 turns out on the blue hex high speed adjuster from full hard. To increase compression damping turn the adjuster in (clockwise) – this will stiffen the compression of the shock. The low speed compression adjuster will soften small bumps and improve traction. The optional high speed adjuster will firm up the damping for big hits with no loss in small bump compliance, firmer settings will improve pedaling as well, lighter settings will smooth out square edge hits. Spring preload can also be changed to tune the shock to the weight of the rider. The shock spring preload can be varied by tightening or loosening the preload collars. The standard preload is 1.5 turns, (min 1 turn / max 3 turns). The rider sag must be adjusted to 1/3 of the total stroke with the rider sitting on the bike. This is the difference from fully extended position to the rider sitting. The ride height can be raised or lowered ± 5 mm to quicken or slow steering within the range of preload settings
