No room for a regular sized flat blade screw driver.
How is everyone changing the rebound and compression the rear shock ?

This is what they show in the manual...long screwdriver at an angle.
Looking at your pictures, I would think it would help to have someone lift,or push down on, the tail in order to shift the location of the shift linkage.

I use a small flathead screwdriver, like from an electronics repair kit or a jewelers screwdriver for both of them. The upper one you have to angle a little to access the adjuster but it’s not hard to do once you figure out the approach angle. The bottom one isn’t an issue, even with a normal flathead.

Thanks! Looks like they are using a thin screw driver. Btw, is that picture from the service manual ?
I don't see it in the owners manual.

Sounds good will try that! I just bought a right angle 1/4 inch ratchet screw driver to try also.

That picture was from the Owner's Manual. Section 5.8.1, page 135 in the Adjustments section.

if it helps, try lifting the rear of the bike (paddock stand) or put weight on it to compress so that the suspension linkages move and allow easier access

@GeorgeO: Lifting the rear ona paddock stand will not change geometry as the bike weight is still being supported by the suspension.

You need to have a buddy lift the weight off the suspension by lifting the rear subframe.....

Sky lift is awesome.

But it doesn't really help with the compression screw on the top which is the trickier one to get to, although neither are that hard to get at with a normal screwdriver with the bike on the sidestand.

Yes had my son sit on the rear seat, that helped a bit.

I do need a paddock stand or better yet a Bursig type stand.

Awesome!
I think I am going to get this over the Bursig.
With the adapter for the Bursig, it's over 700$.
The sky lift seems more versatile and is about 700$ in the US.
I have used an Abba stand before for my B4 but not the skylift.
Thanks for the pics.
