    Front stock suspension adjustability?

    I just upgraded my rear shock to an ohlins but my front suspension is still stock.

    I want to adjust the front but to be honest I don't know which way is tight or loose. When I max it out both ways they feel the same! That proves the suspension is shit when I can't even tell. But anyways I want to do it right. Which way is to tighten it? When you see the # of rings are the adjustable portion or when you don't see it (when the screw is almost bottomed out)??

    Here's a very good video by our buddy Brian that explains what you need to do.
    Not only your forks but that shiney new Ohlins also.
    This video is not one guys idea of how to adjust these things. This is standard practice for setting any streetbike so just do it!
