Been a while since I’ve been on here but wondering if someone with the du505 Öhlins shock could help me out?

My current Scrambler came with the shock on and it needs some adjusting, the rebound damping feels like it’s set to 0!! Springs back so fast.

All the user guides and photos online show the STX46 / du505 shock with a black ‘clicker’ knob at the base of the spring.
My shock does not have this...
There is a small hex head at the base of the shock and I want to check if this is the adjuster?
It’s stuck pretty tight, so double checking before I go at it.

My shock:
44901


image In Öhlins manual/online:
44902

Many thanks in advance,
Josh

Yes, the hex hole at the bottom is the rebound adjuster. The pic with the black knob is incorrect. The factory recommended setting for rebound is 22 clicks.

I have an 1100 with the same shock. My setting is, wind it fully in then 12 clicks out.

Just to clarify. By the term clicks it doesn’t mean you necessarily hear the click you feel it through the tool.

Thanks for the tips guys, no luck so far though.
Adjuster seems a bit stuck and none of my allen or torx keys seem to get a good grip. Bit worried someone’s been ham fisted with it in the past...
