I wanted to ride for a while to get a good baseline "feel" before I started playing so here's what I have...Got my 'sag' set where I liked it from brand new and rode 3000 miles with the compression and rebound settings at the factory clicks. I just started playing around to see how it would effect things and here's what I did, at different times of course. (all adjustments on rear shock) compression dampening reduced 5 clicks from stock and rebound reduced 5 clicks from stock. With both adjustments made followed by a 90 mile ride over the same familiar roads, I could feel no difference what so ever. Is it me, a crappy stock shock, or what?? I read the articles and hear the tales of feeling one or two clicks and one or two psi of air pressure in the tires but I just don't get it. Is this something pretty much reserved for track days???
