I don't have any personal experience in adjusting that particular shock, but I think you might find all that information in our down loadable data base > > >

1. "Tech Library" . . . (find the link near top of this forum's home page)
2. click on "Service Manuals" . . . .
3. then look for a Manual called "Monocross Service Manual" . . .
4. adjustments are discussed in section 9 of that manual.

I had the 250 model in "75 but same suspension & apart from changing the spring or packing the spring up tighter i don't think it's adjustable. When i sold mine the next year the guy had the shock modified for more travel which sat it higher so must have shortened a spacer internally or left it out totally. Number 31[make that 28] in the pic in the link looks like a spacer. In the numbers down the side they call it a stopper. One other thing which probably isn't relevant but on XT550 models the Swing/arm would spread in the loop up to the shock if you went motocrossing them & had hard landings where they would bottom out. Would be noticeable if that was the case.

edit--not sure what pic i was looking at but first shock parts pic on the link it looks like No28 as the spacer.
