Exclamation Didnt know there is a gauge label on the 821 rear shock adjustment knob

Maybe i am blind or missed out the devil details.

Was flipping thru ebay and saw this picture. No wonder the adjustment knob is not giving true feedback.

I guess ducati wanted us to 'see' instead of 'feel'. lol

Maybe the rest of you know about it. Darn.....this is my first.

Too bad those markings are not visible when the adjuster is actually bolted in place...

I just look at the gap between the top of the spring and the hydraulic piston housing. Varies from 0 to about 8mm. That's more accurate anyway.

I thought that you couldn't see that gauge but hadn't gone to check since this posting.
