Cry 2010 rear shock adjustment

I tried to adjust the compression on my rear shock but the knob will only turn 1 turn then stops. I tried to turn it both way and it only turns 1 turn. I'm afraid to force it. What could it be.... 2010 990r

Slotted screw adjustment?

If you are talking about slotted screw (slow speed?) adjustment - it is not uncommon for the screw to seize up. Try lubricating the screw and slowly work it back and forth.
You may have to send it in to a shop to be repaired.

I think he means the spring preloader, the big black knob. It will stick, it takes some force to break it loose. If you can't break it loose with your hand, remove the screw on the end, pull the knob off and turn the metal shaft with a wrench or pliers.

Turn this every couple of months to keep it free.

Thanks and it is the black knob for the compression adjustment. Is it just a buid up of dirt and can I lube it without taking it apart.

The black knob you fold out is not for compression its for preloading the spring more.

Make sure bike is on center stand and rear wheel unloaded to make it easier to turn.

The main o-ring will get dry, you can usually just over power it and twist the knob CW.
