Your Showa forks don't have clicks on the fork rebound or compression damping adjusters. It's the Ohlins fork damping adjusters that click, the Showas are stepless - are you reading the page in the manual that deals with the Tuono Racing?

Sorry mate, my mistake. You didn't specify front or back, i spent Saturday messing with my forks so i've obviously got 'em on the brain....
I can't help with the Sachs shock i'm afraid, 'cos i've swapped mine for an Ohlins, but i remember i could easily FEEL the "clicks" as the compression adjuster was turned, about every 5-10 degrees?

The Sach's clicks. I do not know what is wrong with yours.

Are you sure the '04 clicks? When setting up the suspension on mine, I remember thinking the same thing, "Hmm, clicks? There AREN'T any clicks with this adjuster. Must have changed the shock slightly from last year..."

So, I ignored the baseline setting provided by the magazines and just set it up the good old fashioned way, by sag and feel...

Johnytuono, sorry, I got home with a headache and just plain forgot to count clicks. Seeing as my brain is set to clear after working, isn't there somebody out there that knows this answer?
