After 6 months of have the XL I found there is an adjustment knob on the rear shock. Can you give me info on the settings...The knob turns and clicks but I don't know how many settings it has of if it screws in and out for more or less adjustment....The Haynes manual doesn't have anything on it and I don't have an owners manual...Thanks for any help...

It controls the rebound damping. Higher number equals more damping.

it should have 5 settings. you just need to mess with it until you like the way it performs. trust me, you'll feel the diff.
