There are 2 holes at the base of the shock absorbers. Turn them clockwise for a softer drive. At factory they are setted at 3. THey go from 1 to 6.

on the bottom chrome band there are like four holes. in your tool kit there is a "thing-a-ma-gidgette" (i call it this because it looks like one, it is actually a "spoke wrench"). the tail of the spoke wrench will fit in the 4 holes Righty tighty so it feels weird: one side you are turning towards the front one side towards the back.

THIS WORKS FOR AN 05 SO IT MIGHT WORK FOR THE 08.
remove the toolkit.
remove the tool kit box by removing the 3 small bolts/ screws holding it in,
This will give access to the shock.
I altered my shock yesterday.
Because there is very little space and I value all my fingers, I removed the battery and battery box. I did not remove it but I had to undo the bolts holding it in and swing it out of the way. This gives far better access to the shock and makes changing the settings easy.
I also found that it helped if the rear wheel was suspended off the ground on a bike lift, this takes the weight off the spring.
hope this helps
