I fought the suspension when I first got my WRR. Went to a softer shock spring & softer fork springs. I weigh about 180 plus gear. It made the bike horrendous Almost unridable, It handled so bad I was going to sell it. Decided to give it another try, thank God & still have & love it. I ended up with the stock shock spring, preload backed off to where when you look at the adjusters at the top of the shock you can maybe see 2 threads above the collars. I also backed off the rebound adjuster all the way & turned the compression damper out all the way, turn it counter clockwise. The forks, stock springs 15 oz Synthetic ATF each leg, rebound off & compression at the bottom 3 clicks in clockwise from all the way out. Everyone's riding style & ability & prefered terrain is different, so just some things to try. While I know it could be better if I spend the bucks it works well as is in soft sand, rocky trails & fire roads. Very stabile.
