K1200 shock adjustment 2002 2003

My wife and I just bought 2002 and 2003 K1200s. I cannot figure out how to adjust the spring preload on the rear. I realize that new shocks are in order, But that will have to wait. The manual shows an adjuster that seems to be missing. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I have a Chilton for my 98, I'll see if it covers the 02 adjustment tomorrow.

Thanks, think maybe the owners manual shows an earlier model that adjusted with a "collar" and these use the divorced adjuster mounted on the frame.

This is all I could find regarding the remote adjuster.
