adjusting rear travel settings for my Titus motolite

Hi, Can someone please guide me as to how to change the travel settings at the rear from 4" to 5"? Mine is set at 4" (bottom hole) and I read that 5" is to have it at the top hole.

Is it as simple as loosening the screw and setting to the top hole? Are there special tools needed? I would highly appreciate a step by step guide

Here is the picture, 5"travel settings is the upper hole and I'm currently at 4"travel



Do i just loosen that screw? Any precautions or special tools other than a torque screw I need?

I know nothing about that frame, but I know about shock mounting hardware.

Yes, you remove that bolt, and install it in the other hole.

^^ What he said.

What you have is a typical swing-link driving the shock. At its current setting, the leverage exerted on the shock is less and the seatstay pivot is traveling less distance (less rear travel) for a given amount of shock stroke. With the shock bolt in the other hole, the leverage exerted is increased and the seatstay pivot is traveling farther (more rear travel) for a given distance of shock stroke.
