I know this is an old thread, but I was searching for some info and found myself here. I have never really done any adjustments on my suspension since I got the bike....it felt pretty good after delivery and I just left it alone. Well, on the 4th we had family/friends over and my curious nephew was hanging out with the guys in the garage. He was fascinated with the C14 so I let him set on it and act like he was riding, all innocent enough. Well, when I wasnt looking he started inspecting everything and my brother caught him turning the rear dampner knob like it was a spinning top. I went out there today to put it back to normal and I am not sure where normal is. I see postings refering to "clicks" but mine doesnt "click".... in fact, i am not finding an all the way in or out either..... it just seems to turn and turn and turn. What has this kid done to my adjuster??

It should be more of a 'detent' feeling and not a 'click' as such.  You should feel something, though.  Just checked mine and it does detent, but it takes nearly a turn to do so on mine.

The clicks are rather subtle and on some bikes can be easy to miss. That said, if you're not finding the 'stops', either all in or all out, you have a different problem.

On a first offence Jim?  :o

I think that losing a hand would suffice.
