Adjustable Shocks?

JScheier

Too Hot for the Boss!
There should be a red cover on top of the shock (snaps on only one way). That cover has the numbers 1-5 on it. Each number matches a detent on the shock adjustment slot (which also has an arrow on it).

I have heard that some of the boss's made if off the line without the red cover... so that could be a problem for you.
 
I use my camera phone when I adjust them, take a pic to see what direction to turn it, then do the clicks, then a pic to confirm. Too chubby to be climbing in and out at the track.

Great idea!
I wear bifocals, so its tough to see the rears without crawling in.
Next time, I'll use your camera trick.

Sounds like a justifiable reason to upgrade to an I phone 4. Thanks.

I have an old Blackberry ;D Just make sure you use the flash and set it to macro mode (the little flower picture) otherwise it won't want to focus on the close up knob.

The backs would not be so bad if the white lettering was clear, mine are all faded like in the pic from the factory.



In one of the other threads, there is mention of them spinning. I never tried, so can't say either way, but people were asking whether it was bad for it to spin past 5. So I would guess they all can.
 
Thanks for the pic. I simply can not see the tiny numbers. I had to ge my wife to look at them for me. The camera is a great idea. Now I have to figure out how to shut off my flash. In the mean time, I plan to carry a magnifying glass with me.
 
The flash helps, I tried both ways. Just take the pic from a little further back and then zoom using the screen. You might need to set macro mode like I mentioned for it to focus on the cap instead of the background.
