run the preload adjuster all the way in and count the turns out. The adjuster needs to be moved periodically to keep it from seizing, which can be pricey to fix when the knob breaks off in your hand

depending on your weight you may need a rear spring to get your sag in the ballpark
Currently I am running the manuals sport settings with another full turn on the preload both front and rear. I also just found a set of. 54 fork springs that I'll be installing. For now I I figured I'd give the rear a couple of extra turns on the preload. If that sucks I guess I'll go for a rear spring. I weigh around 230 with gear but am losing weight not gaining!
