Remember the 2 turns in the instruction for the bike the 'valve was designed for... and in the case of the the ones used in the GS that would be a Harley or Metric Cruiser...

That means the 2 turns is for a heavier bike with much less suspension travel (as least I think that is what it means).... and that leads me to conclude less pre-load(and/or a softer spring) would make the 'valve work better on a GS
