The easiest way is by raising the bridge saddles with a small allen wrench. You can also raise the action by tweaking the truss rod but I don't know how to do that.
turning them to the right? or left? and how much of a turn to be safe? my strings are lower than the average bassist uses, and I want the action higher.
If you are raising the string height by raising the bridge saddle with a small allen wrench, there is no danger of damaging the neck (unlike turning the truss rod). Anyway, I believe turning clockwise makes it higher. You can tell by the string tuning. Raising a string higher will make the note sharper.
If you want to do a truss rod adjustment for more relief so that the action is higher, a half turn counter clockwise should be sufficient.

I have now learned one of the hermetic secrets of the URB - you must treat your strings as you would your babies.
Although , maybe Ed's approach is a bit "fundamentalist" for me!
