SOURCE: 2008 M50 rear shock adjustment
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

There is a ring above the spring that you will need to turn clockwise ( Down on the spring ) then another above it that you tighten down on top of it to lock it in place.
