Honda CBF 500 ABS 2008 rear suspension

Hey there,

I wanted to adjust my rear suspension yesterday to position 4 from 3 to make it a little harder as i carry a pillion passanger.
now I checked in the handbook and also a mechanic showed me quickly how to do it and theoreticaly I should hook in the spanner and turn, job done.... now when i started turning it was quite hard and after couple minutes trying i manged to turn just that not the adjustment bit turned  but the whole suspension started turning i was wondering if this is going to be a major issue or if its still safe to ride?  i will seek advise from the garage in 2 days but until then...
thanks D.

Any monoshock i`ve done, i put the bike on the centre stand place the C spanner in a slot (few of) on the ring and grab the whole coil spring at turn both together.

You could oil the steps to make it easier to rise up the lugs.
