NOTE: Be sure the damping adjuster is not between positions but is located in a detent. Compression damping: The compression damping adjuster has 16 positions or more. Turning the adjuster knob 3 one full turn clockwise advances the adjuster four positions.
To adjust the adjuster to the standard position, proceed as follows:. Turn the adjuster knob counter clockwise until it will no longer go. Check that the yellow dots 4 on the knob and reservoir are aligned. If they are not aligned, turn the knob clockwise until they are aligned.
