Preload shock on bmw gs 650 dakar

I've tried to adjust to height of the motorcycle using the preload knob.
After I've lowered it , i can not get it back up to the regular height.
As i am over 2meters the height present an issue.
When i try to lift it (high setting) and try to screw up the shock with the adjustable preload knob, the clicking sound is there, and the shock seems to respond to the oil pressure, but the bike stays the same height?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Mihajlo from Serbia

Is there a way to lower the suspension? I need the bike an inch lower for my height.


you can adjust the rear shock to a softer setting , the info should be in the owners book, or you could get a local upholster to remove some seat padding ..
