Hi Dick,

I don't feel the clicks (every half turn) unless I turn it slowly. I can hear them if the background noise is low and I am close to the adjuster. I have mine adjusted to 20 clicks anti-clockwise (ten turns) for solo riding and find it better than 30 clicks, and then turn it back to 10 clicks for when I am loaded up solo.

I bought one of the Pre Load Adjuster handles a couple of years ago and it makes life so much easier than messing about with a screwdriver or socket drive.

It's a crap design.

However, just ignore the turns/clicks in the handbook and set the sag to suit your weight and preference.
You can then record where it's set for future quick adjustments
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Hi Dick,

I bought from a member on here, Paulvfr, who gets them made to his spec. They are good quality, quite easy to fit and makes life much easier.

This is his profile on here:

Also this is a topic about the tool:
