It's easy.

Lower the adjustment to 0. With engine off, hold in the up button while listening to the tone of the motor. Note what number is displayed when you hear the motor start to labor. It should change tone before it hits 3. Ideally it should do it before 1 or 2.

If it is any higher than 5 or 6, you might want to think about bleeding the pre-load actuator assy.

Or better yet, send it to Max at Traxxion and let him rebuild your shock with a stiffer spring and new piston, and he will also bleed the pre-load actuator for you while he has it. The Traxxion rear shock is a night and day improvement over the OEM Honda shock.
