Suspension adjustment is always counted as clicks out from fully clockwise, are you saying you went an extra 6 clicks clockwise to make it stiffer? How did it affect ride quality?Fantastic ride today, especially as i know where the water is, so avoided that route
Was going out for emergency rations, Naan bread and beer for later
The other day i was having a few Mmmmm's about the 690 and it's handling after a spirited ride, i was a bit shall we say, erratic. Which doesn't exactly bother it, nor me, but i wanted it a bit better.
Had a bit of a look round the settings on the Wilbers site, the adjuster has 22 clicks, now i'm not an expert so i don't exactly know how it works with the combined shocks, is it rebound, compression or what, i have no idea. But after if feeling a bit weavy/bobby on the back i changed it from where it came at 11 clicks, to 17 clicks, so 6 clicks 'stiffer' and boy does it help things, so much nicer on corner entry now.
I'm also not sure how much my clothing wear changed things, i noticed just how blowy it was at speed in my textile KTM jacket.... Today i went with the Alpinestars leather jacket and that really does give some stability without the jacket billowing about everywhere.
But overall, it was just a brilliant ride.

That's correct, i went 6 clicks clockwise. But yes, in some ways you're correct that it wasn't 17, it's actually 5, using your process.Suspension adjustment is always counted as clicks out from fully clockwise, are you saying you went an extra 6 clicks clockwise to make it stiffer?
