Compression damping DR650

Recommended Posts

Is the object to increase preload to where you can set the rear comression damping at the lowest possible setting? I can't seem to tell any diffence cranking it one way or the other?

No - the object of the preload adjustment is to get the sag set to the proper level. The compression damping adjusts how fast the shock can be compressed. It is hard to feel the difference in the compression damping. You would probably have to do a long ride and adjust it several times to get a feel for where you want it. Look at the thread below this one on suspension it explains sag and links to an article on it
