The RaceTech Valving can be adjusted by changing the internal shims. There is a bleed jet that can be changed too, All that, requires the removal disassembly of the shock. Therein lyes the reasoning for the external adjustment. The compression adjuster on our stock DR 650 shocks is quite limited in what it will do. By totally opening it up the spring tension that controls the blow off is basically gone and you get some more bleed for fluid traveling between the shock body and reservoir when the shock shaft enters the body. A real bleed control in the form of a needle jet with a knob controlling it ant the bottom clevis of the shock is what we have done on our new DR shock conversion, this GREATLY improves the adjustability of the shock. This adjustability is accessible at the side of the road or trail, just by using your fingers.
