Have emailed Progressive with no replies so will try here..

The 5th Element shock on a Bullit... the manual speaks of x returns to tune the begin/end stroke etc... I am curious

- once you have screwed the adjuster all the way clockwise, how many returns does it take to go fully anti-clockwise?
- for all the adjustments as well - if people know

thx, Chris

Thanks... they are the recommended x returns for varying weights etc... I am looking for the x returns it takes to doo a full wind out of the various adjusters from fully clockwise to back out to full anticlockwise. make sense?

for e.g. - the TFT site says the position sensitivity winds out 5 returns

I thought I had seen something to the effect of the adjustments have about (and I don't think it's always the same, but don't know why) 5 turns to them. I have assumed the reason they always start from a full clockwise position is for accuracy (but I know what you mean, when you're almost all the way out, it would be convenient to have a starting point for counting turns that's easier to get to--at least I think that's where you were coming from).

I was advised for my riding style and weight to do - for e.g. - 2.5 returns for end stroke. When I full 360 degree turns the end stroke only has 2.5 returns until it stops... so i was just concerned that i was doing it worng.

some audible clicking noise would be good instead of trying to fumble around with that dicky plastic allen key thing they give you.
