    Fox F80RL 29 Rebound Adjustment

    Hi, I'm riding an '09 GF Paragon with a Fox F80RL 29 fork on it. I'm having some confusion about which way to turn the rebound adjuster knob.

    The Fox manual says turning the rebound adjuster knob clockwise slows down the rebound.

    However, on the knob, there is a little "+"symbol, with an arrow pointing clockwise, and a little "-" symbol with an arrow pointing counter-clockwise.

    I would assume the "+" would mean faster rebound and the "-" would mean slower rebound. But that assumption contradicts the Fox manual.

    Can someone please explain this to me?

    "+" increases the rebound and "-" speeds up the rebound on Fox forks. When you are turning it towards the +, you are "adding" rebound damping, hence the plus sign.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    Um, your first sentence still has me just as confused as I was before.

    I think the second sentence is what I was looking for. So it's actually a rebound damping adjustment. So "+" adds rebound damping, slowing the rebound; and "-" removes rebound damping, quickening the rebound.

    Is that correct?
