It's set for 250 lbs. at default, but the pre-load is adjusted only so that you don't bottom out. It doesn't raise the back, nor does it lower it. Think of it as a cushion. The harder the cushion, the more load it will take to fully squeeze it.f5nix said:From reading this thread... I'm hearing that the shock setting is really a matter of ride preference, but wouldn't it make sense to increase the setting slightly in terms of weight?
I currently have mine at default, 3. Does anyone know what rider weight the default setting was set/tested for? I weigh about 180-185 lbs and was thinking of increasing mine to at least 4, since I occasionally have a passenger also.
Sorry about the newb/squid questions... I'm always trying to learn.
