Tein Flex Adjustment Knob

Post by Freescopesdad »

I noticed yesterday that the adjustment knob on my left rear coilover no longer makes the clicking sound when turning the knob. So I have no clue how the dampening is set on that unit. Can I service this unit myself or do I need a new adjustment screw? I'll try to call Tein USA later. Their USA website just refers all technical email inquiries to their Japanese site so that is probably not a quick solution. Has anybody with adjustable Teins dealt with this issue?

I don't have a set here to check but I imagine it is like my Ohlins in that the item that 'clicks' is not in the shock, but simply on the shock. With the Ohlins if we tighten down that top piece too much it won't click and the solution is to merely take it off and attach it again not quite as tight.
