Insync Exceed 266 shocks/adjusting?

Hello - it's me again - the WD40 guy.

Another question -

I just recently purchased a 2002 Specialized Expedition Sport with Insync Exceed 266 front shocks. (My first new bike since my Huffy Santa Fe 10 Speed )

If you're sitting on the bike, there is an adjustable knob on the top of the left fork. This adjusts the stiffness of the ride.

I would like to stiffen up the ride a bit because so far I have only done street riding and I find that on my downpedal, I'm loosing alittle by the fact that my shocks are compressing.

How many times should I have to turn this knob? I tried turning it about 10 times clockwise but it did not seem to do anything to the stiffness of the shocks. I tested by pushing down on the shocks from the handlebars.

Any ideas?

Turn it clockwise to tighten it, as for how many, I'd say until it feels tighter or doens't turn anymore

Yeah...that's probably what I have to do. It sounds like a no brainer.

Thanks for the response!
