Gen 1: Rear shock

Should there be any "clicks" when adjusting the rear shock? My own mc and one I had the opportunity to try at a dealer didn't have any. But the service manual clearly state they should be there...

I recently bought the bike and the shock seems to be working, but its difficult to tell if its working correctly...

(2004 ZX10-R stock setup)

I noticed the same thing on mine, so I went by quarter turns instead of clicks. Its the bottom right?

Thx, it's actually both the top and bottom adjuster...

Does the top adjuster on you bike have these "clicks"?

I'm only really worried about it, because I have read that on some shocks this indicate that the shock has lost it's nitrogen pressure, but I'm beginning to believe that it is normal for the stock unit.
