I have no clue what a dual sport is!
I'm just curious because I have a 2000 XLT Sport.

Ohh, just check and see if it has torsion bars. If it does, you qualify

Quick question, when you say X amount of turns, do you mean that you turn the bolt all the way around so where the mark you made at the beginning goes around X amount of times or do you mean you turn it so far and each one of those counts as a turn?

One full turn, so the mark you made makes a 360 degree turn, and lines back up where it started.

Ok another question haha, I noticed that my driver side bolt was almost all the way in and my passenger side had a ways to go. Should i max them both out and un-crank them so they are even or should i have cranked them both the same amount of turns but still leave them un-even sticking out?

crank them evenly...the drivers bolt is gonna be in more to compensate for ranger lean lol...its because the driver and gas tank are on that side...my drivers side is maxxed and the pass has a way to go...i turned them 9 times

They are like that because of the ranger lean. You will need to crank the passenger side more.
you wont turn each one the same amount. Generally people go 4 on driver 6 or 7 on passenger side.

Does a bolt being bottomed out, meaning no more travel mean the torsion bar is twisted and needs replacing?
