The rear suspension units may be adjusted after a small grub screw is loosened. Even if not intending to adjust I recommend removing the grub screw with a small Allen key and greasing the threads before replacing.

My screws were almost seized in place (on a fairly new bike) because no grease had been applied. If left, the screws would have become seized in place and no adjustment of the suspension would have been possible.

Suggest that when replacing the grub screw is tightened fully then backed off 1/4 of a turn.

No picture sorry. The screw is fitted to the bottom adjusting ring (to keep it in place when adjusted). It is a tiny grub screw and requires a very small Allen wrench to loosen/tighten. Mine was almost seized in its thread because it had been assembled "dry" without any grease on the threads. If left for a long period in that condition I doubt if I would have been able to loosen at all meaning lack of suspension adjustment to the rear shocks.
I don't need to adjust mine but was concerned that it would never be possible if the screw had been allowed to seize in situ.

Keith, the allen key is 2,5mm. I used some antisieze on mine
