The rear shock has high and low speed. The red ring around the rear low speed compression screw is the high speed compression. Stock is around 3 o'clock (little dots match up). I have mine at around noon for trail work, and put it at stock for MX. Use a 17mm wrench to adjust-a little is a lot.
Experiement, it really pays off.

The low-speed circuit is used for all other compression that is NOT high speed. When landing from a jump, the low speed is not even used (or at least that's my impression, may be incorrect).
If you are consistently bottoming the shock and you have the high-speed set tight, you probably need a stiffer spring or at least adjust the one you have.

-Low speed is slower moving damping like G-outs or slower oscillating(rolling) bumps. It also can influence handling when the back end feels loose.
-Many conditions are a mixture of high and low speed. Whoops ridden faster use more high speed, and when ridden slower use low speed. Experiment with each at the extremes to get a feel for what is going on.
-An often disregarded fact is that the rebound adjuster can influence low speed compression damping so try to make only one change at a time.
-Adjustments beyond the clicker range can be made by revalving the shim stack. Choose a shop experienced with your bike and be sure to explain thoroughly what your needs are.
