Start by winding the adjustment knob below the spring all the way in (clockwise) and then all the way out, counting the number of “clicks” as you go.

How do I know if my shocks are adjustable?
get under the car, if they are black, look old and have wide springs they are probably stock. if they have thinner springs like shown on the teins they are aftermarket coilovers. if they have a threaded sleeve under the spring they are base height adjustable.
Does adjusting preload change ride height?
The suspension may feel stiffer when preload is increased, but that’s because adding preload compresses the spring, so it takes more pressure to move the suspension any further. Adjusting preload simply determines the motorcycle’s ride height. Basically, when ride height is overly high there is too little sag.
What is suspension tuning?
