Rear shock adjuster

Does anyone else have trouble with the rear shock adjuster? I have a 2013 650. I managed to get the knob to turn once last year after a lot of hassle (and water pump pliers). Not happening this year. Just would like to hear from you all, maybe a simple fix before I take it in for warranty work.

It tends to stick if not used regularly. Turn it back and forth once a week. To get it started, take the plastic knob off an use a tool on the metal end.

If you take the handle off to clean and lube, mind the ball bearings and springs. They escape easily.
