Turn the adjuster clockwise ("in") until it stops. Don't force it, just turn it until it seats. Then back it "out" (counterclockwise) the indicated number of clicks or turns.
The slotted low-speed compression (LSC) adjuster will click.
The 17mm hex nut hi-speed compression (HSC) adjuster will not click.
The rebound adjuster is located at the bottom of the shock, under the swingarm, just above the shock connection point at the linkage.
It will operate in the same manner as the LSC adjuster.
The rebound damping adjustment is not broken into low and high speed circuits. It simply controls the speed at which the shock returns from its compressed state.
Hope it helps!
