Clarification on instruction for shock in manual!

Recommended Posts

The little brass screw will turn with the knob. 
 

anti-clockwise is the same as counter clockwise. 
 

that’s how I read that.

Inner brass screw is low speed compression, large red knob is high speed. clockwise on either increases damping, counter(anti) clockwise reduces damping. Something of note, the HS adjuster (red knob) is not very linear in adjustment, more like an on/off reaction no matter how far you go in either direction. There are better aftermarket solutions for that downfall if it's something you want to pursue.

I do know how they work. I was just thrown off by what I circled in red. Was thinking the same as mode12 pointed out about the low speed rotates when turning the high speed knob.

 

I did have the suspension valved and sprung for my riding terrain and weight. Not sure if it addresses the high speed being more of an on/off thing tho.

Krannie explained this better than I did. Low speed rotates with high speed, but is not changing the setting on LS when you move HS. 

 

He and I both have since replaced the stock compression adjuster with the Lainer version and it is much more linear in adjustment.

Your doing it wrong Doc.You have to read it aloud using rising and falling singsong tones while moving your arms like like a maestro conducting a Wagnerian opera.

I'm headed to Florence for a destination wedding, then taking a 5 day ride into the mountains on a rented Duc, are you local to the area?

Nope, I am further north in Austria. But I used to be member of the Lancia Delta Integrale Club in Treviso and also was member of a vintage car club in Francenigo.

The Italian tractor MFG's are even worse the axles have a "mouse hole" in them to make the axle wet with grease. is their way of saying there's an inspection cover to fill the axle with gear lube

The Spanish (I own a GasGas, a real one not a KTM Gas) are even worse. Reading their owners manuals is better than watching a comedy.... 🙂
