Ok, really dumb, easy question here. What exactly does the little turnable knob on the rear shock reservoir of my 650L do? Rebound? I am no noob, but I cant feel any difference with it adjusted in different ways.

Rebound, yes.

You should be able to notice the rebound feel. Try noting your current position, and set it all the way hard and ride it. THen set it full soft.

You'll notice it then!

Ok, cool. BTW, my '93 L with 8k miles still runs like new, and rips.:prof:

Seems you really need to get the right springs for your weight before you can really get good adjustment out of those settings.

I am guilty of that! Need to do it soon...

Ya, 200lbs before gear is a little too much for the stock suspension.
