Actually I'm pretty sure it means "Soft" and "Hard". Turning one way the forks are set softer, the other way they are set harder. I think that is for compresion not rebound, but check the manual.

You can check you owners manual to see how to set them. Generally heavy guys need the suspension set harder and lighter guys softer, but it's personal preference really.

Soft and Hard...it's for compression damping. But it's also the same directions for the spring preload, too (the nut fitting that the screw head sits inside of on the top of the forks). The stock settings should be OK unless you're actually going to set your static sag...but that can be very complicated if you don't know exactly what you're doing. I'd leave it alone, or have a shop set it up for you. You can really mess things up if you just start tinkering.

It's the rebound damping adjustment -- the compression damping adjustment is down at the bottom of the fork, just above the axle.

No, no no...your all wrong. The S and H actually stand for Sad and Happy. So if your in a bad mood, or feeling down, turn both all the way to the S setting. Conversely, if you just got laid and are feeling all good about yourself, the the full H setting is the way to go.

Thats just my opinion though[}:)][}:)]
