manual setting of preload

Hi

question:

I don't have ESA:

I tryed to adjust preload manually. I could turn the knob around forever. There was no "stop".

Is that normal ? - I can't see any indication whatever it is in high or low position ??

Michael -

I don't have ESA either. Turn the adjuster COUNTERCLOCKWISE. At the factory setting, it should stop after about 5 turns. Just keep turning it. It should stop eventually. Then, turn it CLOCKWISE until you get a "sag" (while sitting on the bike dressed) of about 1 ". You can tweak it from there to suit your riding style/comfort preferences.
