I have recently adjusted my rear suspension to make it firmer and am very pleased with it, however the front forks are too soft on the standard settings. Which adjuster's do I adjust the top or bottom one to make it stiffer.

P.S I don't want to buy new springs just want to adjust standard ones

The bottom clickers adjust the compression dampening and the top adjusts the rebound. Try turning up the compression settings a couple of clicks to firm up the front end. Changing out the fork oil weight will also effect the performance. If you haven't done so already get rid of the stock honda goo and replace it with a good quality fork oil.
