Note

Each adjustment knob has 22 adjustment positions. The closer to position 0 the knob is set, the stiffer the suspension.

Adjusting front suspension settings

Make sure the adjustment knob is set to 0 before starting the adjustment. This makes it easier to determine what adjustment position is set.
