Re: Koni yellow adjustment

Michael Veglia decided to speak these words:

Well, this is the exact wording: "Attention: Shock absorbers may never be 
fully adjusted"

Thats what it says, there are so many possible meanings for it, i really 
wish they were a bit more clear.

As for 2B, i am starting to have less and less faith in them.  They keep 
saying to just set the konis at full stiff, i dont think that is the 
right way to go.  Now that i hve the externally adjustable ones, i will 
be able to find out for sure...

I will let you all know.
