Hi all,

Can anyone please advice how the high speed compression is adjusted?

In the Owner's Manual (page 132), it states:-
"Turn the outer screw COUNTERclockwise to INCREASE high speed compression damping." and "Turn the screw CLOCKWISE to DECREASE high speed compression damping."

But the diagram in the Service Manual say COUNTERclockwise is SOFTER.

I am confuse....

And is there any guide on how to properly setup the high speed compression?

Thanks.

Not sure what service manual you're looking at but mine (both digital and printed Kawi OEM version) says the same as my MOM. Pg 13-19:

yes, the Service Manual we referred to says the same, but Owners' Manual says the opposite. I wonder which one is correct?

My bike is Europe version so maybe the manual is different, What is the North America Owners' Manual saying?

Thanks.

Clockwise harder, anti clockwise softer.
It's the same with all suspension damping screw it in for firm and out to soften.
