Adjusting Stock Shocks

See in this picture that Greg_650 made for us without the case -
it ramps up to the top firm setting (5) and then drops off the edge back to the softest (1) but if you going the other way you hit the wall and stop at 1

The upper part just below the spring will turn if you grease the ramps.
Just stick a rod in the boss in the side and turn.
Instead, I remove the lower bolt and twist the bottom part.

Make sure both sides are adjusted the same.

Not to hijack your thread but the holes on my shocks don't match. Meaning if they are all the way down one is facing the rear of the bike the other would be facing forward or something to that effect
   Does this matter? I adjust mine so I could see more of the bottom of the shock.(3 clicks up)

I think to get the last 2 clicks you may need to unload the shocks. On my car I cannot adjust the firmness with it on the ground..

No, as long as both shocks are adjusted the same, doesn't matter which way the point.

If you want to have them both point rearward, lift the bike slightly to take the weight off the shock, remove the mount bolts, take shock off and turn it around.  or just twist the bottom.

What you are looking at, is a chrome cover... you can stick a screwdriver in the hole and turn, or if you take a little weight off the rear of the bike you can even turn by hand... just grip the lower part of the shock and twist...
