suspension

My suspension is really hard, I was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the suspension? The manual shows "compression damping & rebound damping " only. But the manual gives no advice on suspension adjustment.

We have custom spacers and we cut down the OEM springs when we do a 20mm valve job

Service manuals (N.America and Euro) and owners manual located here:
https://www.rc51.info/index.php?page=service

Note that the service manuals only reference SP1 forks for disassembly.
Do not use these instructions for SP2 forks or you risk damaging the fork caps/preload adjusters.
