In the manual it seems like there are 2 different places on the shock to make adjustments, I only located one. The other has an "S - H" marked above it. Where is that one located?
Also, how can I tell the stiffness of my shock spring? Are they color coded? Mine's silver.
I didn't try playing with the forks because the handlebars were too close to reach the screws. Are those the only adjusters on the forks?
It's hard to tell exactly what/where some of the adjusters are from the drawings in the manual.

On your shock the one you probably found is one of the compression adjustments (can't remember if the screw or nut is low speed compression though). The blue nut around the screw clicker is the other compression adjuster. If you look at the shock down by the linkage there is another clicker that is your rebound.
All WRs of each year come with the same spring rates to my knowledge (I don't know what they are off the top of my head though).
