Just slide in an allen wrench or a phillips heads screw driver and slide the mechanism. There is no screw in there. Takes about 3 seconds to do

So the allen wrench/phillips is just used like a prybar to turn the acutall collar?

Maybe this will seem like a stupid question - but are you guys removing your pipes to adjust the rear preload?

I've got TORS, which I think are identical in size to stock, and it doesn't look like there's any room at all to insert a hex wrench into that hole to turn. What say ye?

No, I did it with pipes on. Once I put my bike up on a rear stand, it was much easier to turn the collar.

And you had no issues with clearing the pipes when you made the adjustments? What tool did you end up using?
