Speaking of the stock rear shock on an '02 919
The preload adjustment is ramped, with the default being (?) 3 out of 5 ?
I recognize the "right" way to set preload is to actually measure sag.
But if you're lazy and not measuring sag, and have read too many threads here about the stock spring being overly stiff... would the right way to guess be to knock the preload down a bit?
Or do you expect me to actually have a friend who can help me measure?
