Default Remote coilver adjuster?

Does anyone have any suggestions for a remote compression adjuster to fit the top of my rear Motons? Rear dampening is easy to reach being remote on the canister (on the rollbar, easily within reach) but the compression adjuster is right on top of the strut. I canĺt get back to the rear shock tower to adjust it, I have to send my wife to climb between the roll bar!!

Any thoughts or suggestions for a remote adjuster I can place next to the canister?

Ahhh, I see now. All you guys are soooo skinny you can maneuver behind the bolted seats and within the rear roll bar to get to the rear shock towers AND you have super long arms!

Unfortunately I have neither of those physical attributes.

I have found that once it is set, I leave it where it is...My wife is not as Porsche adjustment friendly, although happily she COULD fit !

Put a Lexan rear window in your car (if you don't have a Cup car), drill holes and have a long adjuster like Nascar uses.

Another option is sliders on the seats.

I have an tool that has the proper size on the end to work on the adjusters. It's just long enough that I only need to half way climb into the back over the passenger seat to reach the adjusters.

I've never seen another like it and have no clue who made it. I'll grab pictures tomorrow and post them.

Get rid of the Motons and buy Ohlin's TTX.

It may be more engineering then you want to devote but it could be done with servo motors.

I had something like these for my JRZ's in my SP996. I think JRZ made them for me.

these are actually very close to what I have except mine are bare metal and a little less fancy.

go for the 14" and you will be able to get to the adjusters fairly easily...still not super easy but much less of an issue.
