Red face Just in need of confirmation-Paso rear suspension adjustments

Hi all, having done my tiny bit for ST manuals I am attempting the same for the Paso-750-907 range. The 750 Paso manual seems incorrect to my 20 years ago memory. I have attached the original manual's content about adjusting the rear shock. Are my thoughts at the start correct or am I more senile than I thought?
I know about the Paso sub forum but it is very quiet compared to this one and the Paso was a belt drive Sport-Tourer [They said!]
Cheers Rik

Both shocks have a remote preload adjuster (pre-charge). Your only other adjustment is rebound damping (brake in the extension).

I don't know why the shock w/ the two-ring preload would also have a remote preload adjuster on it. Maybe the rings were to ball-park the preload, the fine tune it (or make ajutstments for passenger/luggage) with the remote?

Either way, it wouldn't be for compression adjustment.

Thanks Chuckracer, that makes sense now. I think, way back in the 90's, I squidged the preload using the rings because I'm fat but all I got was back pain even with the precharge knob backed right off! I'll leave the advice as it was Rik
