I am very familiar with that link. Kohler phone support is helpful, but only work 8-5. THanks for trying.

If I recall, the stops may be on the trim? (can't specifically remember) I assume you're looking to set it a a certain max temp and that will be full hot for you that you cannot exceed?

Here is a pdf file on page 11 and 12 you will see how to adjust this valve to the temp you want.

I hope this will help you.
