turn the compression dial up,
tighten the spring, or charge the rear shock with 250+psi of nitrogen

it has a H and a L marking.
H- high compession
L- low compression

turn the knob toward the H setting. on my 84cr125 i have two of these knobs, one at the bottom of my shock and one on the nitro tank.

How much do you weigh?? What kind of condition is the shock in?? There is a chance it is worn out and there is a chance that you have the wrong spring for your weight. And, of course, there is the chance that an adjustment only will work for you.

as long as you are turning it so it compresses the spring. also, crank up the compression.

if you tighten the spring it will be stiffer- but adjust the rebound as well - because it will rebound faster from the tighter spring,- or get a heavier spring weight
