I just used a bicycle pump and a digi air guage to adjust the fork pressure, the valves are just the normal car type.
I cant say the new disc and pads made a huge difference but they are better then before. Ive still got to install my braided brake line which I hope will finish the job off.
As for the shock, I got upto the next to last notch using a honda shock adjuster I had with my fireblade but there was not enough movement to get onto the highest setting.
I just used a flat head screw driver covered at the end with a cloth and knocked it into place. I cant remember it being to hard to move, make sure you have a good contact from the head of the screw driver onto the notch on the shock. It does take a good thump.
If your unsure, call into your local bike shop.. im sure they will lend you the correct tool to do it.
